Nina Simone: Flipped

Nina Simone: Flipped

Nina Simone's idiosyncratic voice has been sampled often, framing soul-searching rap meditations for the likes of Lauryn Hill, Talib Kweli, Lil Wayne, and Brother Ali. JAY Z and Kanye dare to warp her singing almost beyond recognition for “New Day,” while Mali Music taps “Little Girl Blue” as inspiration for his equally mournful “Little Lady.” Soak in the originals next to their proud descendants.
