El Debarge: All Samples Cleared

Original Song: “I Like It” by Debarge

LL Cool J: “Make It Hot”

El Debarge: I didn’t hear “Make It Hot,” [but] I like it.

Warren G Feat. Mack 10 “I Want It All”

El Debarge: [Editors note: Before talking about the song, DeBarge C-walks throughout the room] I remember that one! [starts rapping along] “I want it all, brand-new socks and draws and I’m ballin’ every time I stop and talk to ya’ll. I want it all, all, all, all.” Whew [Laughs]. Whoa, that’s the one right there. I like that one. That’s the West Coast boogie right there baby. [Sings] “Backyard boogie-oogie-oogie; West Coast boogie-oogie-oogie.” That was Warren G and that Mack 10 right there baby. I want it all!

Busta Rhymes “Wheel of Fortune”

El Debarge:I’m very honored [about] that one. When people do songs and they got their own message and I could be a thought in there, that means I was in their heart somewhere. To know that I was a part of what influenced them to do music, that’s powerful. I mean that’s probably more powerful than a whole song re-sampled because his whole thought was somewhere else and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, he thinks of me. To put me in there means I was in his spirit.
