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

39. The Ohio Players "Funky Worm" (1972)

Producer: The Ohio Players
Album: Pleasure
Label: Westbound

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)
