Sample Saturday: Fabolous’ Beauty x Submotion Orchestra

Fabolous recently dropped the follow up to one of last year’s contenders for best mixtape of the year – The Soul Tape.

The Soul Tape 2 isn’t as great as it’s predecessor but it has it’s moments. The tape features guests like Joe Budden, Teyana Taylor, Pusha T, J. Cole, Cassie, Trey Songz and Wale.

Production comes courtesy some relatively unknown producers who sample from old time soul like Dionne Warwick to contemporaries such as Rihanna.

The song “Beauty” which features Wale, was produced by Araabmuzik, one of the more popular producers on the project.

The Sample

The sample used for the song is from UK dubstep band Submotion Orchestra. Araabmuzik sampled from the song “Perfection” which can be found on their 2011 album Finest Hour.

You can find the sample at around the 2:25 mark in the clip above.
