39. The Ohio Players "Funky Worm" (1972)
Producer: The Ohio Players
Amir: "West Coast hip-hop was all over that, from Ice Cube to N.W.A. The Midwest too. It's a slower sample, BPM-wise. A lot of beats on the West Coast at that time were slower, they were made for the ride. Some of my West Coast favorites used that."
Kon: "Another one that's been sampled to death. That record was ahead of its time to me. The keyboard breakdown sounds like some Egyptian-type shit. I play that record in my sets a lot."
Sampled On: MC Breed & D.F.C. "Ain't No Future In Yo Frontin'" (1991)
