Kon + Amir Present: The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Samples Of All Time

3. Clyde McPhatter "The Mixed Up Cup" (1970)

Producer: Clyde McPhatter
Album: Welcome Home
Label: Decca

Amir: "Clyde McPhatter was a doo-wop, then later a rhythm and blues artist-whoever found that record first, to be able to flip it like that, to me that was genius, because you're looking outside of the normal R&B and soul and funk. In the '90s, cats were looking for all kinds of different stuff; this kind of represented that era for me. Those drums were all over hip-hop in the '90s."

Kon: "A really great break, a record that was sought after specifically for the drums. The Beatnuts used it, I myself have used it, No I.D has used for Common."

Sampled On: Nas f/ Sadat X "One Love (One L Remix)" (1994)
