    Features a sample of Herbie Hancock's song "Cantaloupe Island." The song opens with a reference to Birdland jazz club in New York City: "Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, we have something special down here at Birdland this evening: a recording for Blue Note Records." The line is spoken by Pee Wee Marquette and is taken from Art Blakey's first Birdland album, "A Night at Birdland Vol. 1." Donald Byrd was also a member of Us3. Both "Cantaloop" and "Change (Makes You Want to Hustle)" were produced by the Mizell Brothers. Incidentally, Larry Mizell is the father of KEXP Afternoon Show Host, DJ Larry Mizell, Jr. Check out this profile written by Riz Rollins back in 2016: https://bit.ly/2UKTSP8

    They're sampling Herbie Hancock's 1964 song "Cantaloupe Island." Us3 is a British jazz-rap group founded in London in 1992. Their name was inspired by a Horace Parlan recording produced by Alfred Lion, the founder of Blue Note Records. Here's an oral history of Us3: https://www.spin.com/2013/10/us3-cantaloop-flip-fantasia-herbie-hancock-lou-donaldson/
