“Envy”
Artist: Fat Joe
Producer: L.E.S.
Release Year: 1995
Song Sampled: “Sexual Healing”
Sample Release Year: 1982
Sample Effect: This song sounds like the producer just gave up and told Fat Joe: “Why don’t you just rap over the backing track to ‘Sexual Healing’?”
Why The Song Is Dope: Fat Joe decided that the best theme for a song sampling “Sexual Healing” was murder, inner-city crime, and incarceration instead of, I don’t know, SEX? The weird thing is, the contrast kind of works. —MC

Artist: Shaquille O’Neal featuring Mobb Deep and Lord Tariq
Producers: Mobb Deep
Release Year: 1996
Song Sampled: “Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)”
Sample Release Year: 1973
Sample Effect: Mobb Deep sampling the bass line from a Marvin Gaye song for a Shaquille O’Neal backing track is awesome because it provides a totally legitimate excuse to reference Marvin Gaye’s legendary performance of the National Anthem at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game.
Why The Song Is Dope: So let’s be real here. This song is just straight hilarious.The first lyrics are “From Orlando to Queensboro,” which is a phrase that no human being has ever uttered before or since. Later in the song, Shaq compares himself to Biggie and says he’s reppin’ New Jersey. Why, Shaq? Why would the great Kazaam betray us like this? —MC
