17. Billy Brooks "Forty Days" (1974)
Producer: Ray Charles, Billy Brooks
Album: Windows Of The Mind
Amir: "That's a sample for 'Luck Of Lucien' off the first Tribe album. No one had ever heard of Billy Brooks. When I had actually found the record it was on a label started by Ray Charles called Crossover, one of the few records on that label. It goes for a lot of money, because you don't see it a lot. It's such an infectious sample, you can't deny that. After hearing it on that Tribe song, you need to know what it is."
Kon: "Straight record in general, a real distinct groove on that one. Havoc from Mobb Deep rhymed over it again recently on 'I'm A Boss.'"
Sampled On: A Tribe Called Quest "Luck Of Lucien" (1990)
