Song Of The Day 9/15/2012: Super Beagle - "Dust A Sound Boy"

Fuzzy Jones (d. 2005) was a Jamaican reggae and dancehall DJ, particularly valued by the Kingston music community because of his killer introductions. According to Super Beagle, "His intros were so good that the sound you were killing [was] usually dead by the end of the intro, before the actual tune started." That's Fuzzy on the beginning of "Dust A Sound Boy," which Kanye West sampled for his recent hit "Mercy." Now it's stuck in my head, but that's fine. There's a lot of room.
