An Example of a Sample

Happy Holidays from PHATalogue! 

LL Cool J, Greg Nice & DJ Z-Trip have an awesome segment on Rock The Bells Radio(Sirius). They take a deep dive into songs from the past that were sampled into hip hop songs. Clever idea. It is really cool to see what artists were sampled and how they were sampled. The guys keep it very interesting and they are very funny. Good stuff. Check out a sample(no pun intended) below. There are many other segments on youtube and you can hear it on the Rock The Bells channel.

Please don't forget to check out the PHATalogue store at or search ebay for PHATalogue. Fresh items are listed every week. There were and will be plenty of LL Cool J and Nice & Smooth items. 


Heavy D & The Boyz- Blue Funk album release date...Hmm?

Heavy d blue funk

Guess what is up on ebay for auction starting today??!!! You guessed it....Heavy D and The Boyz-Blue Funk! This was one of Heavy D & The Boyz best releases. As I was posting the album to ebay, I looked at the release date. On the web, it states January 12, 1993. I don't remember it that way. I remember the album being released in December 1992. In fact, on the cassette it says 1992. At the time in 1992, I said they should just release the album in 1993 to make it a true 1993 album. Am I going crazy? Does anybody remember the real release date of this album? In reality, it was only a few weeks difference but was it truly a 1992 or 1993 release???
