If you’re anything like me and have been waking up with Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit C” in your head every morning since the CDQ leaked, you’ve probably wondered what the sample source was for Just Blaze’s brilliant beat. Since we here at Passion of the Weiss aim to solve your problems of head, heart and podiatry, the answer is “Cross Your Heart,” a 1967 single from the rotund Chess recording artist, Billy Stewart, a former confederate of Bo Diddley who died at the untimely age of 32 when the car he was driving plunged into the Neuse River in North Carolina. Now that that’s been settled, please send in your questions pertaining to bunions, corns, and sundry flat-foot related issues.
