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

21. Tom Scott and The California Dreamers "Today" (1967)

Producer: Bob Thiele
Album: The Honeysuckle Breeze
Label: Impulse!

Amir: "'They Reminisce Over You'-you could throw that on for a bunch of 14-year-olds and they'll be like, 'Oh, my God.' That did a lot for Pete Rock's reputation as a producer. That's just huge."

Kon: "I believe that's a cover of a Jefferson Airplane song, but Pete Rock really flipped that. That's one of the perfect examples of marriage between the mood, the MC, and just how the beat went."

Sampled On: Pete Rock & CL Smooth "They Reminice Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" (1992)
