What’s that Sample? Berlioz in Hip Hop
January 26, 2007 2 Comments
Nike used a song called “The Second Coming” in a commercial introducing their Air Force 25. “The Second Coming” samples from Hector Berlioz most famous piece Symphonie Fantastique. Following the footsteps of Ludacris with Mozart and Dvorak (Coming 2 America) and tons others using Orff’s Carmina Burana, I think this may be my favorite classical/rap mashup.
Here’s a clip from the original [Just Blaze sped up the track quite a bit!]:
And yes, it’s the song from The Shining’s opening credits.
