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

8. David Axelrod "A Divine Image" (1969)

Producer: David Axelrod
Album: Song of Experience
Label: Capitol

Amir: "T-Ray, who worked with D.I.T.C, Sho Biz and all those guys, he produced 'Take 'Em to War' for Kool G Rap's 4,5,6. It's a real, dark sinister record. You can't help but have an evil face on when you listen to the record."

Kon: "Just like so many Axelrod songs, that first listen makes you wanna run to the sampler or beatmeaker. You don't hear anything to this day that sounds like David Axelrod."

Sampled On: Kool G Rap f/ B1 & MF Grimm "Take 'Em to War" (1995)
