DJ Parler Displays Nina Simone's Samplology



Born in Canada, raised in Maryland and residing in NYC, DJ Parler is no rookie: his well-downloaded mixtape series Samplology act as a comprehensive document of newer music and the original songs that inspired them, with each chapter highlights a select artist, producer or genre, spanning artists from Kanye West to Isaac Hayes, Biggie to Dilla. This week, in the latest chapter of Samplology, the late great Nina Simone gets the treatment. You'll be surprised at the tracklist—I mean, we all know Simone was sampled for Talib Kweli's "Get By" and Common's "Misunderstood." But... G-Unit?!... Sampled Nina?! You have to hear it to believe it. Download the Nina Simone Samplology here.
