Swelly Express Sample Playlist


Cover Art for Swelly Express by Chiddy Bang

This post was supposed to go up a long time ago, back in the very beginning stages of tunegrape. A while ago I discovered a list of samples used on the album Swelly Express by rap group Chiddy Bang. Xaphoon Jones is a genius when it comes to sample choice and this playlist is obvious proof of that. When I’m feeling Swelly Express, I can always turn to this playlist for an alternative. This alternative, for the most part is a calmer, and more diverse alternative to the synth-heavy, skit-heavy Swelly Express. An interesting playlist that expands its reach across a number of genres, the Swelly Express Sample Playlist is a great listen, as well as a must have for any real Chiddy Bang fan.
