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

46. Isaac Hayes "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" (1969)

Producer: Al Bell, Marvell Thomas, Allen Jones
Album: Hot Buttered Soul
Label: Enterprise

Amir: "Rest in peace to him-Isaac Hayes meant a lot to hip-hop, just like James Brown. That's one of the songs that Public Enemy used, on 'Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos,' that was a big song off their second album. A few other people used other parts of the song as well, but that was definitely one of the best."

Kon: "That is another amazing artist, all around. He covered it all, he did everything. What can I say...I mean, it's Isaac Hayes! That's Chocolate Salty Balls. [Laughs.]"

Sampled On: Public Enemy "Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos" (1989)
