Video: Rich Medina X Dilla Breakdown of Common - "Heat"

Hot sh*t! Once again it's the Bling47Dilla Edition. This time Waajeed heads out to the home of the cheesesteak to connect with Rich Medina. Rich drops some knowledge on Afrobeat-legend Tony Allen's tune "Asiko," which Dilla used to construct Common's "Heat," and then takes it deeper, going on to share some interesting thoughts on how Jay Dee made his drums "breathe." Watch and learn.

props to Bling47
