Tall Black Guy has consistently been one of our favorite producers here at The Word Is Bond. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Terrel Wallace (aka Tall Black Guy) has been consistently building a massive online following through a steady stream of productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops. His influences of music from Motown to Jazz provide superior samples and production quality in every track.
Tall Black Guy’s latest track, ‘Funky Drummers In A Space Suit’ is the textbook definition of reliving a classic track and turning it into a hip-hop banger. Taking samples from James Brown’s ‘Funky Drummer’, which is sampled quite often, this has to be one of the best flips I’ve heard.
