Samples: "Tramp" (1967)

Salt-N-Pepa and producer Hurby Azor remixed the fiery “Tramp” duet of Redding and Carla Thomas into a early '90s hip-hop/dance, female empowering/advising duet on their debut album Hot, Cool & Vicious. The female trio uses the sample of Carla Thomas saying “Tramp” throughout the track as well as the melody and beat of the original.
