    Jim- great episode. Re your question on the instrumental used for Root Down in Glasgow, it’s J Beez coming through (bonus beats) by the Jungle Brothers. And yes, I believe it includes a sample of Father Figure by George Michael. The beat is sick and that performance has to be my favorite- I love when MMM drops it. I never heard him use any other time. With MCA’s last verse, it’s definetely classic. Keep up the good work

    Mike…nice! Thank you so much. Another question for ya…I think it’s a custom MMM beat, but do you know what instrumental MMM drops during the TT5B renditions of “Rot Down.” It’s lead by a piano loop.
