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

36. Kool and the Gang "Let the Music Take Your Mind" (1969)

Producer: Gene Redd
Album: Kool and the Gang
Label: De-Lite

Amir: "When you're finished with 'Chocolate Buttermilk,' and sampled enough of that, that's the next one on the album with the ill breaks in it. A lot of times, a lot of classic hip hop albums were made from just one album. Because once you use it, someone else is going to find the same album and use something else, so you might as well be the first."

Kon: "You can't go wrong with any early Kool and the Gang stuff."

Sampled On: Ice Cube "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" (1990)
