Throwback Jam of the Week: Souls of Mischief – Cab Fare

By - Thursday, August 8th, 2013

It’s hard to imagine a song with a more perfect sample. Deriving its primary melodic loop from the theme song for Taxi (Angela, written by Bob James) Cab Fare tells stories to which anyone who has ever taken a cab can relate. From cabbies jacking up the price to dipping off on fares, Souls of Mischief drop verses from the perspective of both the driver and the passenger to create this classic joint. Cab Fare was never released on a Soul’s album, but instead was put out on a collection of songs by Hieroglyphics, a super group composed of a number of west coast underground MCs. Best of all this song captures that summer vibe that most of are eternally chasing. So kick back, relax, catch a cab to the west coast and let us show you how we ride.
