OG Sample shit - Cold Coffee and Donut

Last night I fell asleep getting together some music to make edits of when I stumbled across a Canadian pianist you may or may not be familiar with. Galt MacDermont is a Canadian Pianist who was born in Montreal in 1928. When the Canadian government appointed his father to be the Commissioner to South Africa he moved to Cape Town (where my dad was born) and studied African music. MacDermont later moved back to Canada and went on to score a movie called "Cotton Comes to Harlem" Starring Red Foxx.

His best known work is scoring the musical Hair! which he received one of his two Grammy awards for in 1969. Most of us should be familiar (get familiar!) because of the countless hip hop producers who sampled this Canadian Legend. Here are a few of my favorites;

Galt MacDermont - Cold Coffee

Gang Starr - Werdz from the ghetto child (Produced by
DJ Premier)

Galt MacDermont - Golden Apple (Pt.2)

J Dilla - Mash (produced by J Dilla)

Galt Macdermont - Space

Busta Rhymes Ft. O.D.B (rest in peace) - Woo Haa remix (produced by Rashad Smith)
