The Loneliest Number [Update]

This is two perfect examples of how to kill a given sample. "One is the loneliest number ..." and you know the rest.

Charlie Hilton - One (feat. Khalil)
B.o.B - One (feat. Big Kuntry & Mac Boney)
Charles Hamilton - Beginner's Luck

They couldn't be any different from pacing and additional instrumentation to beats and vibe. It's a great thing to hear and take in samples flipped so ill while the tune is so very well known to everyone in the world. Lyrics, too. Khalil goes in about what it took to be that One that created everything and all the feelings towards Dude. While B.o.B and the rest on his people talk about singularity and looking out for yourself in an industry that doesn't really care about you. All while life itself doesn't seem to either. I approve of both. This would been a great 2dopeboyz battle, but oh well.

UPDATE: added Charles Hamilton's new joint to this year-old post. Nice little 7 degrees thing going between Charles putting Charlie in the spotlight with a blog post like two years ago and the to-be discussed B.o.B/Hamilton companionship. Yeah ... so there ya go.

Three Dog Night - One (is the Loneliest Number)

... put 'em both together and you got yourself a super spork.
