    So if you wait until the 4:45 mark, you’ll start to recognize something. It’s incredible that producers sit and listen to shit like this. Someone also used that horn stab at 6:26, I can’t remember where I heard it.

    I was just listening to It’s Over today.

  • 911

    Just mail me your ipod and I’d be good…1

  • Philly Black

    This is dope! Mad cats sampled this from the well known to the underground!

  • DJ Lucky Luke

    “Who shot ya” “It’s Over” off the Pretty Toney album… yes, Duel of the Iron Mic… Sounds like “Older Gods” off Wu-Tang Forever as well…

  • Billy Kincaid

    My favorite use of this is LL Cool J’s “Ill Bomb”.

  • Danja29

    Yep… I was just sharin’ this w/ somebody the other day. The way Nashiem sampled the part for ‘Who Shot Ya’ was smart- I don’t think anybody woulda thought to do it that way.

  • Paul Cantor

    The best usage was on Gza’s “Duel of the Iron Mic”
