Chuck Stanley - The Finer Things In Life

Def Jam - 1987

I went record shopping with Blu Jemz & Dark Alley the other day. I was hyped because I hadn't done so in months due to the move; the boxes of unpacked records, no turntable set up, etc. I thought buying a bunch of new shit would motivate me. It was true. I'm now fully back in effect and I have some real gold coming to you in the near future, but back the story.
We were digging around in the used R&B section (duh) and I saw a Def Jam record that I was unfamiliar with by Chuck Stanley. It was only $1.99 and produced by Vincent Bell* who did all the Oran "Juice" Jones stuff so I figured it was well worth a shot. Now, I may be in the minority here, but I really love that Fabolous single Baby Don't Go. I feel like it has this old 80's Run-DMC feel and I even play it out sometimes. People look at me weird... but I digress.
The point is, that beat is completely lifted from this. Jermaine Dupri literally did nothing. It's just a straight loop. Plus, this track is actually pretty rad. I mean, Chuck ain't no Luther Vandross, but on some 80's r&b shit, this bangs and you can do that thing where you make girls think you're gonna play "their favorite song" but it's just the sample. Yay for bumming people out.

*This dude has the illest discography. Joints for Stesasonic, Neneh Cherry, Hi-Five, Danii Minogue and he even played the Bellzouki on Bob Dylan's 1975 album Desire.



"Jermaine Dupri literally did nothing."
