Diggin’ in the Crates: The Four Tops

09/15/2009

“Still Water Runs Deep,” was The Four Top’s song that is going to make my hip hop production career. There is so much good stuff to sample in that first minute. Right, you know what I’m saying? Yeah, you do. 4Shades get at it, I’ll post it? As cited on Wikipedia, The Four Tops:

The Four Tops are an American vocal quartet, whose repertoire has included doo-wop, jazz, soul music, R&B, disco, adult contemporary, and showtunes. Founded in Detroit, Michigan. as The Four Aims, lead singer Levi Stubbs (born Levi Stubbles, a cousin of Jackie Wilson and brother of The Falcons’ Joe Stubbs), and groupmates Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton remained together for over four decades, having gone from 1953 until 1997 without a single change in personnel.
