The 50 Best R&B Songs That Flipped Rap Beats

35. Erykah Badu "Get MuNNY" (2009)

Producer: Erykah Badu, Karriem Riggins

Erykah Badu's re-sampling of Sylvia Striplin's "You Can't Turn Me Away" made its true inspirations explicit, extensively quoting Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s original, but transforming it into an improvised-sounding sketch. Her version transforms the original's street context into a daydream-like paen to uncorrupted innocence. —David Drake

Inspiration: Junior M.A.F.I.A. f/ The Notorious B.I.G. "Get Money" (1995)

Producer: Ez Elpee
