Sample Saturday: Smoke DZA – Loudest Batch x Cecil Holmes

I’ve posted a number of Smoke DZA samples on here before – the only reason being that I really enjoy DZA’s music that much. It’s probably because of the always enjoyable and masterful beats mostly by 183rd. Like “Loudest Batch” a head-nodding, two and a half minute cut off Rolling Stoned that finds the “murderous […]

In fact, I’ve never liked wrestling even as a […]

The album is filled with some great sample sourced beats mostly from DZA’s go to producer 183rd. “Ball Game”, which features Kendrick Lamar, is one of those tracks. The Sample: 183rd crafted […]
