40. Foster Sylvers "Misdemeanor" (1973)
Producer: Keg Johnson
Album: Foster Sylvers
Amir: "A lot of cats in the West Coast used that. That was on a lot of late '80s/early '90s hip-hop as well."
Kon: "That was used first by The DOC and Dr. Dre for 'Funky Enough.' The Sylvers was basically a group that was an answer to the Jackson 5. Foster Sylvers, who was the young singer of the group like Michael Jackson, I think he was actually a convicted pedophile later in life. Yep, he was a diddler...I don't think it was a misdemeanor. [Laughs.]"
Sampled On: The D.O.C. "It's Funky Enough" (1989)
