      'The Message from The Soul Sisters' by Myra Barnes was also used for 'City under siege' by the Geto Boys. Awesome album !!!!

      I don't think that the group that made 'hot music' is the same that made 'hippy chick'. Hippy chick is done by the two chicks, i had the albut and hot music was not on it.

      Oh yeah, I def knew that and technically, De La never really sampled it, they just interpolated the chorus with new singers.

      You mentioned that De La Soul sampled the song, "Name and Number" by Curiosity Killed The Cat, but did you know that's just the vocals. The beat originated from a group called The Whatnauts on their hit, "Help Is On The Way" which was also sampled by Heavy & The Boyz on their hit, "Sex Wit You". That is all.
