This blog was started after being inspired to attempt to find the original songs that were used/sampled to create most of the Hip-Hop and R&B that I grew up listening to. No small task but everyone needs a constructive hobby.
My quest began with a 9th Wonder Mixtape a friend gave me that showcased a lot of those samples.
After one listen I was obsessed and haven’t stopped downloading yet.
The only obstacles were the time and effort in the task of trying to find all that music online. If I was having a hard time of it, I’m sure others that were interested have had the same issues. So I thought, why not upload all this audio in one place to make it more accessible for everyone while also writing reviews, interviews, etc. about music I think people should know about?

Thus The SoulReservoir or TSR for short was birthed.


I’m a Hip Hop Hedonist, addictively craving the culture since I first heard the thumping beats, witnessed B-Boy’s & Girls battle on dance floors and experienced how DJ’s use their hands and innate sense of rhythm to Move The Crowd and command a Block Parties.

What captured my attention the most within all of this was the MC and the way he/she can put words together with such care and precision while telling you a story. The short supply of coverage given to these élite MC’s is my inspiration for this blog…
