Funky President

 

Notes -

The track kicks off with session drummer Allan Schwarzberg. It’s a tight, simple fill between the snare and rack tom and has been used in tracks such as Eric B. feat. Rakim’s Eric B. Is President, De La Soul’s Ghetto Thang, and perhaps most recognisably Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince.

But as well as the fill, Funky President’s swinging, kick-heavy drum beat has been used plenty of times too. NWA deployed it in the verses of Fuck Tha Police and Ice Cube went on to use it multiple times, too. More recently, the fill and groove were used by Nas for White Label Freestyle.
