“Legal Money”
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
