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

1. David Axelrod "Holy Thursday" (1968)

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

Amir: "After The Beatnuts used  on 'Hit Me With That' in '94, everyone found out who did this song, and it opened up a can of worms."

Kon: "The playing is so in the pocket-the bassist he used to use in his sessions was Carol Kaye, a female bassist, and her sound was nuts. She really had some chops and she still does stuff today. Axelrod just kicked ass. It was kind of experimental and it had to do with religion. Back in the 90's, everybody was on David Axelrod's nuts. That guy deserves it though. That dude does heavy, moody-ass ill shit."

Sampled On: Lil Wayne "Dr. Carter" (2008)
