The 20 Best White Girl Vocal Samples in Rap History

3. Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel" (1981)

Album: The Message
Producer: Sylvia Robinson

Whoever says hip-hop isn't built on immediate sampling can use this song as a prime example. While many rap purists argue against calling Debbie Harry a rapper, she was in fact rapping on her foray into upbeat street singing on "Rapture." The exact same year the song dropped, Grandmaster Flash used it for his own adventure. Clearly sampling never had a statute of limitations.

Sample: Blondie "Rapture" (1981)
