The 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Beats of All Time

94. Mike Jones f/ Slim Thug & Paul Wall "Still Tippin" (2004)

Producer: Salih Williams
Album: Who is Mike Jones?
Label: Asylum, Swishahouse, Warner Brothers

The combination of the Slim Thug vocal loop, a "William Tell Overture" sample, and Paul Wall informing us that he's "got the Internet goin' nuts" made this Mike Jones' biggest hit and a breakout song for the then burgeoning Houston rap scene. The original version with Chamillionaire featured the same vocal loop, but it wasn't until Salih Williams remixed it with the ill Gioachino Rossini loop that it reached its full potential. It turns out the Swishahouse crew was somewhat partial to classical music, as "The Nutcracker, Act 2, No 1: Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" is used on "Got It Sewed Up" from the same album.
