House Shoes is back with the next J Dilla breakdown session, courtesy of Bling47. This time the dude makes perhaps his boldest statement yet. “This might be the one. This might be the greatest chop, that Dilla ever came up with.” He is talking about Dilla’s use of the sample “Johnny Don’t Do It” which you can find split, cut, and chopped up in “Waves” off of Donuts. In this installment, House Shoes gives Dilla some immense credit for paying attention to this corny, superpop track…and turning it into a deep cut, barely reminiscent of the original sample. And as Shoes puts it so eloquently, “he found this shit, and, what the fuck happened after he found it, how did that thought form in his head to do that with it?” Watch below.

    I totally agree. Other worldly, alien activity for this track.

  • Jericho Drumm

    DAMN!!! And for some strange reason, I thought that he had sampled Strawberry Letter 23.

  • N/A (No Alias)

    It’s stuff like this that makes Dilla so great for beatheads like myself. It gives the listener a greater appreciation for how he came up with something so ill from something that the average sample-based beatmaker wouldn’t touch. Or taking a over-used familiar sample and making something out of it that sounds nothing like the way it was sampled before. Long live Dilla!

  • I agree with N/A %100

  • Yes sir my favorite track off the classic DONUTS!

    After working 13 hours today, this definitely made my day. These webisodes are a life saver. House has on a dope t-shirt too.

    It literally made me STOP
    …..like WTF?!!??
