Video: Rich Medina Breaks Down Dilla - "Fuck The Police"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Master of the mix Rich Medina links with Bling47 to bring out the breakdown of Dilla's "Fuck The Police," which was eventually released on Pay Jay. The chief party rocker touches on his search for the drum loop for this track. He doesn't remember where he was the first time he heard it, but he knows the first thing he thought: "I need them drums." The crazy drum loop comes from the track's main sample, Rene Costy's "Scrabble." And according to Rich, the bangin' beat makes this one comparable to "It's Just Begun" or "Apache" - with these tracks, you know you can't stop groovin. Watch for his thoughts below.
