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

20. Weldon Irvine "We Gettin' Down" (1975)

Producer: Weldon Irvine
Album: Spirit Man
Label: RCA Victor

Kon: "That's A Tribe Called Quest's sample for 'Award Tour.' They slowed it way down. Weldon Irvine is a tragic story-he blew his brains out on the New Jersey Turnpike in the early part of this decade. I think at the time, he was teaching Q-Tip how to play keys, and he also played on one of my favorite Mos Def records, 'Umi Says.'"

Sampled On: A Tribe Called Quest "Award Tour" (1993)
