I will make this short, Before I heard of Vikter Duplaix, Dwele was my favorite Artist to whom I wished I could work with. Still being in A Number 2 spot is far from A bad thing. I love Dwele and its due to his sleepy distinct vibe, FROM RISE to SUBJECT and on and on and on....
I wasnt really blown away by the new album except for "Workin on it" where Dwele makes A Audio Kollage of Classic Dilla Refernences. I thought It would be Dope to put up A few of my favorite "Originals" Each were used in this dwele cut.
P.S. Super big Shout to [kevinnottingham.com] for having the greatest online resource of Original Samples from The HipHop albums that we all grew up on!

The 1st time I heard and heard of Dwele the day I Bought Bahamadia's "B.B. Queen" Album, which to this day is one of my favorite projects - The Vibe is soooooo perfect, Like JILL SCOTT & Getting In the Way -Esk Perfect. The P.H.I.L.A.D.E.L.P.H.I.A. Interlude was.....ahhhhhhhh
