Let’s Play A Game Of Hip-Hop Sample Trivia

It’s no secret that Isaac Hayes is one of the most sampled artists in hip-hop history. It’s to the point where his material’s been sampled so much that you can’t even keep track. I’m going to post 5 Isaac Hayes tracks…. name as many hip-hop songs that sample each of these as you can. Pretty simple, right? THE KEY TO THE GAME IS, DON’T NAME THE OBVIOUS SHIT. Ok, let’s go!


“Hung Up On My Baby”- Tough Guys (1974)


“Man’s Temptation”- Black Moses (1973)


“Bumpy’s Lament”- Shaft (1971)


“The Look Of Love”- … To Be Continued (1971)


“Joy”- Joy (1973)

    Yo, P don’t try and act all knowing cuz you said Jay Z, that is an obvious one.

    As for that Joy, CMW sampled that on their first album, the blue tape. I just can’t think of the track and don’t feel like digging through my cassette library to get the name.
