the great sample Will Smith
This was the first sample I ever realised. Big Willie Style was the first Hip Hop album I ever bought.
I grew up in Miami so clearly this song was a BIG hit there, but more importantly for me, it's because of Big Willie Style that I learned what sampling is. It was a big shocker at the time because it was like every song on the album was a direct sample of something else... totally blew my mind.
