Here’s some more exceptional rap shit that sampled some exceptional funk, soul, jazz shit. The way Godfather Don flipped the Betty Davis singing was genius. The John Klemmer horns that the SD50’s lifted for “Leave Ya With This” are viral,at the least. And Half A Mill(RIP). “Homicide Scene” is probably one of my favorite obscure rap songs of all time. Graphic street drama with a message at it’s best. The Roy Ayers song it sampled and the Bohannon song are also remarkable tracks on this comp.
