And the world’s got me dizzy again
You think after 22 years I’d be used to the spin
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
So I’m always pacing around or walking away
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And I’m balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away

NPR Microphone Check: Marley Marl  

Marley Marl is one of the most important people in hip-hop history. He’s the one who figured out how to sample — how to get pieces of songs off vinyl records and into a drum machine. More than 30 years later, and 25 years after his first album, 1988’s In Control Vol. 1, he sat down with Microphone Check hosts Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelley to tell stories about the moment he realized what his discovery meant.

I was just reading Big Boi’s AMA on Reddit and he said he’s been recording some songs with Killer Mike and its possible they could drop an album together.

Please let this happen.
