Talib Kweli and Res are Idle Warship (great name) and this is the first song I have heard from them. It uses a Corey Hart “Sunglasses at Night” sample just like a million other beats I have heard over the last 3 years. Even though the urge to turn the song off was strong once the first few beats played, I resisted and in the end I am glad I did. This is one of the best uses of that sample I have heard and even though I thought it had been played out, it is still original and different. Res takes most of the song and she is perfect for this type of track. But I will now have to state that no one else should use this sample, I don’t care if its the hottest beat you have ever made, don’t do it! There should be a 10 year moratorium on this song starting……….now.
