Swizz Beatz Picks Up “Samir’s Theme”
We suppose it should be more surprising that it’s taken this long for a big-deal rapper/producer to pick up Debonair Samir‘s “Samir’s Theme.” Its triumphant horn progression has to be one of the most used and abused staples of Baltimore club music, and for good reason. Now it’s happened–Swizz Beatz is spitting about being cool like ice cream over “Samir’s Theme” on his new track “It’s Cool.” Note that Swizz Beatz is credited for bringing Daft Punk to mainstream hip-hop, so who knows what it could do for club. This plus Kanye West doing verses on DJ Class’ “I’m the Ish,” and club is that much closer to being a mainstream phenomenon. Get the track here.
