Sample Saturday: Jay Z & Mary J Blige Take From Lonnie L. Smith


What does Mary J Blige, Jay-Z, and Lonnie Liston Smith all have in common. A dope hit stemming from Lonnie’s “A Garden Of Peace.” In 1996 Jay sampled it for his track “Dead President” on his debut album Reasonable Doubt. Then in 2005 Mary gave it more soul for her track “Take Me As I Am” off her MJB album. Sample Saturday here are all three tracks.
