hahaha ODb on Fame ! That's gold !

Funky Corners

Definitely my favorite one!

La fabrock

That's a lot of reseach ! Thanks !

Funky Corners

It's fun to have these hip hop musical challenges sometimes. I was surprised that there weren't a wider variety of David Bowie songs being sampled.

La fabrock

Love this El-P instrumental !

La fabrock

That Saigon is produced by Kanye West ?

Funky Corners

Did I say that? Looks like it was produced by J. Cardim.

Did Lace Da Booms used the sample before Biggy ?

Funky Corners

I'm having a hard time finding the exact release date of Lace Da Booms. They both came out in 1997 and Biggie's was in August. It's certainly possible that LDB was out first.

La fabrock

Cool interview bit ! It truly underlines his talent and wit.

Funky Corners

I do think he was a pretty smart guy.

La fabrock

Chinese man is a French band ! Thanks for mentionning the show !

Funky Corners

From what I heard, they sound really good!

La fabrock

Indeed I didn't know PE sampled Bowie ! But it was too short !

Funky Corners

That's the thing with PE, they take a million quick samples and put them all together. Some repeat throughout, but there are a lot of snippets that go into their music.

Who are Soldiers ? The song got me nauseated... What was it sampling ?

Funky Corners

Nauseated! Haha Admittedly, it's not the best track on the show. Apparently I had their name wrong, it's spelled "Souldiers." As far as I know, that was the only song they put out and it sampled "This is not America" by David Bowie.

Sir Mix a lot is such a perv !
