All he needs is a scratch DJ and a Pro Tools rig..... It shouldn't be difficult to find music clips to "loop"..... The hard part is knowing the right producer to get airplay......
The only rapper that I can think of who uses mostly real musicians/instruments is Snoop Dogg..... (If there is "audiophile rap", it's Snoop Dogg.) But he's also the master of vulgar..... Not something you would want play if you have little ones running around.
Hahahaha! Thanks, guys.
Actually, when I still lived in Green Bay (home of the Superbowl champion Green Bay Packers), I tried my hand for one, count 'em, night at DJ-ing at a local nightclub. I played Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Otis Redding, and some other stuff. Not my good buddy Luther Allison - he wasn't appropriate for the venue. ;)
I was told to quit playin' that "N..." music. That's ok. Live and learn. I still say Otis Redding, who's at the bottom of the lake in Madison, WI, is one of the greats of pop/R&B music. And Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" is right up there, too. (Along with Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love", but that's another story.)
So I left Green Bay, and moved to Madison, where I discovered The Parthenon Gyros Restaurant.
Just when y'all thought I was the whitest cracker in the box, the other soft shoe drops.
