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

18. Jack Wilkins "Red Clay" (1973)

Producer: Bob Shad
Album: Windows
Label: Mainstream

Amir: "Everyone wanted to know what it was. When people found out it was Jack Wilkins, they realized there's another ill version out there. That's when collectors like myself started looking for alternate versions of songs."

Kon: "That's a cover of a Freddie Hubbard tune and the Jack Wilkins version is a sample for A Tribe Called Quest 'Sucka Nigga.' A lot of people don't know, because it wasn't listed as Jack Wilkins, but it was."

Sampled On: A Tribe Called Quest "Sucka Nigga" (1993)
