Legendary soul man Isaac Hayes was one of the most prolific musicians ever and a favorite amongst hip-hop producers for sample sources. Everyone from Jay Z and Redman to Mary J. Blige has struck gold with a Black Moses loop. The Notorious B.I.G’s “Warning” is built on an expert chopping of Hayes’s “Walk On By” (courtesy of Easy Mo Bee). Now Virginia based producers Team Demo have taken that concept to the nth degree.
After releasing the Barry White sampled, Notorious White, in recognition of the 18th anniversary of the passing of the late Biggie Smalls, Viriginia’s heavy hitting production crew, Team Demo (50 Cent, Obie Trice, Sean Price), are pleased to present Notorious Hayes, in time for what would be the 43 birthday of the The King of New York. ‘Notorious Hayes’ is produced using only Isaac Hayes samples, and boasts 15 free tracks that are seamlessly interwoven with classic Laurence Fishburne soundbites.
‘Notorious Hayes’ is now available for free download, courtesy of AudioMack. So hurry up and download, press play, and prepare for this rap killin’.
Team Demo will soon be every rapper’s best friend as they plan on releasing the instrumental version on Friday, July 31st…stay tuned!
