Top 10 Samples in Hip-Hop History ~ Part 5

Updated on June 25, 2015

Welcome Back to a Place You've Never Been Before...

This series has been very rewarding for me personally, as many DJs have contacted me and asked me to do different samples for them. I also have a vast collection of songs that have NEVER BEEN sampled yet, that the artist who hires me to do their beats is gonna reap those rewards.

Samples are small pieces of music extracted from an OLD songs and used to make NEW songs. Simple Enough right?

For The Record: The Most Sampled Artists in History are:

  1. James Brown / The J.B.'s / Lyn Collins

  2. Parliament / Funkadelic

  3. Sly & The Family Stone

  4. Isaac Hayes

  5. Kool & The Gang

  6. The (Funky) Meters

  7. Zapp & Roger

  8. Herbie Hancock

  9. Roy Ayers

  10. Bob James
