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

28. Manzel "Space Funk" (1976)

Producer: Manzel Bush, Shad O'Shea
Album: N/A
Label: Fraternity

Amir: "Manzel was the other group that Paul C, Large Professor were sampling in the '80s. It's a b-boy jam, it's good for uprocking. High tempo BPM kind of song. I like to spin it, and hear when I'm out."

Kon: "Manzel is the shit! 'Midnight Theme,' 'Space Funk,' that's my kind of shit. It's kinda like fusion, snappy drums, with like synth bass and great arrangements. If you don't like that record then I don't know what's wrong with you."

Sampled On: Eric B. & Rakim "The R" (1988)
