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

43. The Meters "Cardova" (1969)

Producer: Art Neville, Ziggy Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli, George Porter, Jr.
Album: The Meters
Label: Josie

Amir: "The Meters are all over '80s hip hop. The one who used that the best was MC Lyte. For some reason, her using it for that Antionette diss really stands out to me."

Kon: "Another band that I think should get a lot more credit than they do. No one really had that kind distinct rhythm and swing between the bass system and the drummer. From New Orleans. They were so good, in fact, that the Rolling Stones had them open up some tours in the '70s. I don't know if that would be my cut from them..."

Sampled On: MC Lyte "Shut The Fuck Up, Hoe!" (1989)
