Large Professor Names “Supa Star” As His 3rd Favorite Sample Flip

Large Professor: “This is when Premier really started to take flight. This song musically translates decades of ghetto life. Those chops from Cameo “Hanging Downtown” sound like a hot summer night standing under a streetlight to me. When you hear how wobbly the original is, and [then] hear how Premier placed those sounds to the beat, that’s drum machine magic.”

“Supa Star” samples Cameo – “Hanging Downtown” (Atlanta Artists, 1984).
