The 20 Best White Girl Vocal Samples in Rap History

6. Nikki D. "Daddy's Little Girl" (1991)

Album: Daddy's Little Girl
Producer: Sidney Reynolds

Suzanne Vega penned a classic track while sitting on a stool at the very diner that the Seinfeld gang would congregate at weekly. Using her own "doot-do-doot-doot-doot-do-doot-doot" vocals as the framework for the beat (and the hook), Vega made a song that still stands the test of time (peep her viral performance of "Tom's Diner" with the Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon). Ten years after it was released, though, Nikki D would use the infamous "doot-doots" for her own track. Nikki wasn't the first, and certainly not the last to use it.
