Sample: Ozzy Osbourne "Crazy Train" (1980)
Album: Thug Matrimony: Married to the Streets
Producer: Jim Jonsin
Label: Atlantic/Slip-n-Slide

Trick Daddy's raps are pretty much the opposite of highbrow but the 305 Mayor has always stocked his albums with challenging production. He's reinterpolated the Talking Heads' "Sugar On My Tongue" for '05's "Sugar (Gimme Some)" and sampled Sting's "Shape of My Heart" (on "Living in a World," from www.thug.com), and even taken a stab at a hip-hop version of one of the most iconic hard rock songs ever, in Ozzy's "Crazy Train." It's not our favorite Trick song but, thanks to an assist from rap rock scientist Jim Jonsin, we feel safe saying Randy Rhoads—the late guitarist behind "Crazy Train's" classic riff—isn't rolling over in his grave.
