47. James Brown "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose (Remix)" (1969)
Producer: Original: James Brown, Remixer: Tim Rogers
Album: In The Jungle Groove
Amir: "It hasn't been sampled as much as the other James Brown songs, but it's a huge b-boy break. When I hear that song, I get goosebumps even to this day. I just envision seeing Wild Style and Graffiti Rock and cats breaking to that. It's one of those songs that has had a huge impact on hip-hop, period."
Kon: "Maybe one of James' most important records. For hip-hop, for b-boys, that's huge, like the 'Apache' line. That's the anthem! I think that's James at his finest. That right there to me, is the embodiment of hip-hop."
Sampled On: N.W.A. "100 Miles and Runnin'" (1990)
