Welcome to the Party Life

Technically, we don't need any more Jay-Z mashup/concept albums (you'll notice we declined to mention Jaydiohead a few months ago), but dope is dope. Umatic's Amsterdam Gangster kicks open with a hanging Hammond riff (courtesy of Meters progeny/funk collective Lefties Soul Connection) while Hove hovers on the lip.

Jay's Soul Connection - Frank's Party Life (from Amsterdam Gangster, buy it here)

Every Weird Tapes song is decadent, yet sleazy, like eating a Senior McFlurry on the hallway floor in your tux. This particular joint teases just the tip of The Isley Brothers' Footsteps in the Dark around 2:05, which is kind of sick (see McFlurry reference above). So Ice Cube borrowed his beat from the brothers and his flow from this chart.

Weird Tapes - Party Trash (from Get Religion, grab their first two EPs here)
