Whoomp There It Is Sample
The goal in writing “Whoomp! (There It Is)” was not to make the most amazing song in the world. DC and Steve simply wanted to make a good bass record that would fit the geographic area in which they lived. To achieve this goal, Steve created the beat using the sample from “I’m Ready” by Kano and DC got to work on the rhymes. He settled on lyrics he’d been working on based on a party chant that was popular in the clubs at the time. Painting a vivid picture of DC’s reality in the club was the genesis paramount to the narrative of the song: The scene is Friday night, Magic City summer of ’92. Players playing and ballers balling and all the girls making money shouting “Whoomp! There it is!”
