WhoSampled x Wax Poetics: ‘Resurrection’ 25th Anniversary Mixtape

October 4th 2019 marked the 25th Anniversary of Common’s classic sophomore LP ‘Resurrection’. The follow up to his 1992 debut ‘Can I Borrow a Dollar?’, the album is produced almost entirely by No I.D., with contributions from Ynot. With a heavy reliance on jazz, samples on the LP come from the likes of George Benson, Freddie Hubbard and the The Modern Jazz Quartet among others. The album spawned two popular singles, the timeless ode to Hip Hop’s ever changing nature ‘I Used to Love H.E.R’ and the Ahmad Jamal sampling title track ‘Resurrection’. In celebration of the album’s landmark anniversary, WhoSampled teamed up with Wax Poetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album tracks, alt versions, interview snippets and of course sample material used in the making of the album. Mixed Classic Material’s by Chris Read.
