R&B music lost another legend today. It was announced that soul legend Bobby Womack passed away at the age of 70. A representative from Womack’s label, XL Recordings, confirmed the sad news to Rolling Stone. His biggest hit was “If You Think You’re Lonely Now,” but many of his records have inspired hip-hop’s finest including my personal favorite, “A Woman’s Gotta Have It.”
9th Wonder just made available 11 beats that he made sampling Womack on his Twitter page. You can download the set here. There are few Little Brother gems in here! #hidingplace.
