A Classic Track: Willie Hutch – “Kelly Green”

Legendary singer, songwriter and musician Willie Hutch created music decades ago that continues to influence musicians today. He has to be the most sampled artist by Three 6 Mafia producers D.J. Paul and Juicy J over the years—think records like “Stay Fly,” “Poppin’ My Collar,” “I Choose You,” and “International Players Anthem,” and many others.

Similar to Marvin Gaye, Hutch possessed a distinctly-soulful sound that reigned supreme on Motown Records during its heyday. He’s also largely known for creating the soundtracks for Blaxploitation films The Mack and Foxy Brown.

He’s one of the people that I enjoy listening to when I’m in the mood to relax and vibe to good music from the past. One of my favorite songs by him is titled “Kelly Green.” Check it out below.
