Top 10 Samples in Hip-Hop History ~ Part 50
It's hard for me to make a big deal out of reaching the #50. After all, 49 is a perfect cube, rooted in the lucky number 7. And what about Area 51? Seems kinda important to the Mothership Connection if you asked me. The number 50 didn't even exist there for awhile...we called it "Fiddy".
The year is 1971.

Lords of the Underground witness the birth of the Funky Child,
Doitall, hit 'em!
For humans to enjoy....
