Song of the Day: Public Enemy – Harder Than You Think

Talk about finding a good sample and using it. This Public Enemy comeback single from 2007 heavily samples the brass section from Shirley Bassey’s track Jezahel and it’s a smokin’ track. I only really discovered this movie after watching the movie End of Watch, which for my money, is one of the best cop movies I have ever seen. You need to watch that. But back to this song, the sampling and the flow is totally reminiscent of early 90s rap, which I guess is to be expected since it’s Public Enemy. How did I miss this song? I don’t even know, anyways, it’s pretty freaking good so check it out.
