The 50 Best Movie Dialogue Samples in Hip-Hop

5. Common Samples The Education of Sonny Carson

Song: "The Bitch in Yoo" (1996)


"That's right I got to take him off of here. 'Cause there's only one and that's me. You understand? For all that fighting, you understand, the sucka think he good, the sucka think he can whoop me, and I know he can't whoop me.... Ay boy, the nigga whole style is chump." This confrontational speech was laid down by the late Derrick "Champ" Ford, a real-life figure from the streets who portrayed the character Wolfe in the cult classic The Education of Sonny Carson (1974). As leader of the Tomahawks street gang, Wolfe attempts to amp up his set before waging beatdowns in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. The rant is also recognizable, too, as the same sample Ghostface Killah used to jump start the drug den invasion "260." However, Common's track, produced by Pete Rock, was released first (by a month) and considering "The Bitch in Yoo" is a scathing dis, the kill-at-will emotion of Champ's bitter words is better suited for Com Sense's Ice Cube meltdown.
