Hip Hop arguably was created when DJs, starting with Kool Herc, used two turntables to constantly play the 'break' in a song while an emcee could speak or rhyme over it. While certain breaks, such as the Apache or Amen, were staples then (and continue to be), certain DJs scoured a variety of genres to find the best breaks to sample. One example of this is Grandmaster Flash's eclectic tastes, which led him to sample Liquid Liquid's Cavern in 'White Lines' or Afrika Bambaataa's use of Kraftwerk's Trans-Europe Express in
'Planet Rock'.

Let's see if we can put some great hip hop tracks here, as well as the song they sample.

Here's one that's been on my mind recently: Big Boi's Shine Blockas (Feat. Gucci Mane), which samples Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes' I Miss You.

Here's another one. Willie Hutch's jam, I Choose You from The Mack is sampled prominently in UGK's Int'l Players Anthem.

Pretty awesome. Definitely feeling the Dilla in that one.

Here's Dilated People's Worse Comes to Worst, which features William Bell's I Forgot to Be Your Lover. I'm actually not too fond of the Dilated Peoples, but the beat itself makes the song.

The best thing about samples, in my opinion, is that they not only create something new with an old track, but they give the song a new life by paying homage to it. It's like that feeling you get after watching a Tarantino film, eager to find and absorb the source material.

Any song from New Orleans in the last 20 years probably samples:
