Mad Ragga Jon "Original Bad Boy" question

Post by 1992 » Sat Mar 15, 2014 7:10 am

I was watching the Socci Olympics a lot this past winter for the Curling matches. I also watched the closing cerimonies and I heard a familiar series of notes that made me think of Mad Ragga Jon's "Original Bad Boy" right away. It was the classical tune that was sampled in this tune.

It made me remember that this was a tune missing in my collection so I went and bought it.

However, I'm still pondering: What is the name of the classical tune that was sampled in "Original Bad Boy"?

Negative.

I looked into the Cape Fear soundtrack (both movies) it's none of those. I searched for Socci Olympics Closing Ceremony Music and I found a tracklist.

This is it:

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No. 1

Mad Ragga Jon sampled a Russian.


Updated Discogs with the info:

and it looks like Offliberty doesn't work anymore... damn

Corrected typo "Twin Peaks". I've always confused Cape Fear with Twin Peaks. I looked into Cape Fear. I'm sure someone would have noticed eventually and said "You looked into the wrong movie".

I was able to rip the audio from the youtube video by playing the audio into the program I use to record mixes. Now I have a nice intro for my Socci 2014 themed mix.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN

I think almost everyone in the world including the DJs that knew Mad Ragga personally have always thought is was from cape fear....

I am sure i even heard vibes playing 'original bad boy' on a pirate in 1992 and telling mad ragga to send him more promos and mentioning the sample being cape fear.....


Nice find 1992.....
