You gotta stop sleeping on Exile. His project with Blu, Below the Heavens, is an underground west coast classic and he’s got albums coming with Fashawn, Blame One and maybe the homie Shawn Jackson. But this song is off his solo album Radio, on which he challenged himself to only sample sounds from local LA radio stations. The result is a soulful beat spattered with static and talk radio samples. This version has vocals by singer Muhsinah. Exile’s sample choppage is very Dilla-esque, if I may say so myself.
