Sample Sunday (Mega Edition): Wangechi’s Consume Mixtape

Provoke Music/Kaka Empire; 2013

We have already reviewed Wangechi’s fresh and new mixtape Consume: Chakula Ya Soul which is already the cause of so much hype (read our review HERE). A review is not enough for a mixtape such as this one that is heavily sample based. So, we have compiled all the songs that (we think) have been sampled in Consume – from the hip hop anthems to some more obsucre selections. Feel free to compare, contrast and share your thoughts on which sample was used best, or worst. Okay, let’s get right to it straight away, in the order of the mixtape tracklist:
