Music: Playa - Wrong Side Of The Bed

Here is another blog exclusive for ya, and this one is produced by Timbaland. A lot of us are probably familiar with this track, but this is in CD quality. Yes, I said it, CD Quality.

I remember discovering this track on Playa's myspace a couple of years ago. I had heard Outsiderz4Life's version prior to that and had no idea the original version was done by Playa. It is definitely one of my favourite Playa tracks (one of Tim Barnett's favourite also).

Whose version of the song do you prefer? Outsiderz4Life's or Playa's?

Outsiderz4Life - Wrong Side Of The Bed





Playa - Wrong Side Of The Bed





And a bonus for all the beat lovers out there, can you hear the tick tick sound in the beginning? Timbaland also used that sample on "Time" by Aaliyah, which I believe was written by Static. Though the song was unfinished, you can hear Static's trademark writing style on it.

    This is one of my favorite tracks. Scott Storch actually played the piano. What made me really fall in love with this track is one night we were in the studio in New York with Timbaland and Scott Storch came through. We were all in the back room and Scott played it live and Static and Smokey hummed that shit! LIVE! Crazy. I have the footage and may share it at a later date! Holla at me.

  11. that tick/beep sound at the beginning is the metronome click, you'll often hear it as a tick, a hi-hat or a beep, and sometimes people use it to count them in, if not through the whole recording ... I guess Timbo liked the sound and decided to include it on some songs ... I had a feeling Scott Storch worked on this when I first heard it ... def wanna see that footage too, a documentary would be crazy, you already got a built-in fanbase right here, and tons of other fans that don't know about the site yet

Rashad Haughton (Aaliyah's Brother) on Static

I recently hit up Rashad Haughton, who is Aaliyah's brother and was very close to her, on Twitter to ask about Static. Here is what he had to say. Full interview to follow??

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...




Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
