The song TransCending has a smaple in it more important then me:
Crystal LaBeija can be herd claiming her beauty taken from the 1967 Documentary called "The Queen." I found her exclamation powerful and heart felt. The sample was taken from the rightfully eloquent fury of a speech delivered to detest lack of queens of color in pageant winners. This lead to something beautiful thankfully. She created the House of LaBeija. Along with other predominate members of the black and Latino LGBT+ community in the 70's & 80's places like House Of Xtravaganza opened up shop. They hosted elegant balls to showcase black queen beauty and other often forgotten parts of what eventually grew to be known as lgtb+. These places were also sanctuaries for the homeless and struggling queers of the community. During they life span of these houses they were pioneers of fashion including vogueing. Moral of the story; white is not a beauty standard and Madonna sucks.

It also has a sample of my favorite "old jazz musicians" Sidney Bechet. A composer and woodwind player; his solos stole every song he played in. He collaborated often with Luis Armstrong and in my opinion takes the cake on every song he did. My personal discovery of this time period open my eyes to how radical and import music can be. Jazz is cool as fuck. except kenny G fuck kenny G
