People have always been of the belief that when it comes to sampling hip-hop cats take the cake. Well, actually some of your favourite TKZee hits have gotten the sample treatment. Which ones? Well, check them out below.
1. Fella Kae
Samples: Madonna - Papa don't preach
But let's be real here, who was expecting to here a full string arrangement on a kwaito album? In that time even. Regardless, at the time it all made sense. Then Geuzin came in with that gruff voice it all came together.
2. Ibhola Lethu
Samples: Johny Clegg - Ibhola Lethu
This one came as a surprise mainly because, well, it was closer to home. Zwai's ear has always been one to catch something which he could easily flip into TKZee's next biggest hit.
Samples: Europe - The Final Countdown
This one was pretty obvious though no one in the hood could put their finger on why the instrumental was so..catchy. Well, there it is.
Samples: Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi
The attention to detail gets more doper here. Zwai didn't even use the song lyrics, he just hummed the melody of the song. This song got them so much love.
Sample: South African National Anthem
Taking the first few lines of our country's national anthem and putting a new twist on them is genius. Everywhere this jam played people would recite that line with enthusiasm. It also came full circle with it being used on AKA's 'Run Jozi'.
Also, the chord strings that start at 0:33 on the TKZee song is sampled from a 1970's American sitcom titled Sanford & Son.
Here's the original.
