"Jussa Playa"
When I first started making this song, I didn't know why I was making it. I was introduced a song by a folk group that I fell in love with in 1989. Perhaps I've been writing this song since that moment. I usually start to make my own arrangement of a song I like after I've listened to it over 100 times or so. I took the lyric "...just a player, on an old piano..." and just started from there one day when I was listening to the song for the one hundred and first time. I don't remember what drums I chopped (when I think of it I'll insert it here). So at first the beat was just the sample and the first "oom pah like" drum pattern. I thought it sounded cool and I was going to just throw it away or make an interlude of sorts with it. Then I started to get all these ideas of a piano player who is actually a player with the ladies (most piano players are huge macks). So I said this will be the piano player anthem for all piano players. I've always believed that the ability to play the piano is mandatory for all who claim to be a musician. Now you don't have to be Marcus Roberts, but you do have to have some sort of working knowledge. That's where the vocal intro comes in. I was watching a video I got from the library and there was a jazz giant who was telling a story of how he explained to Miles Davis why "you got to learn how to play the piano...you must learn how to play the piano so you can SEE THE WHOLE SPECTRUM OF THE NOTES THAT YOU WANT TO PLAY, INSTEAD OF PLAYING ONE NOTE AT A TIME." That just floored me. It explained my whole plight as a musician in Hiphop. That you must see the whole spectrum of notes in order to understand why playing the notes on the drum machine one note at a time was bigger than just some little fad of music. So I knew I had to include part of that video. The sound at the beginning is just the sound at the beginning that signifies the start of something. I added all the samples and piano parts months later to a CD copy of the track I had originally made because I accidentally initinalized my hard drive. You wouldn't believe what this song has been through. But many people tell me it's one of their favorite tracks.

Needs a pitch adjustment and higher BPMs, but what the fuck would I know about music?
