    You forgot about The Scribe's 2001 classic about 9/11 and the invasion of Afghanistan, "The Eisenhower Doctrine": it samples "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath plus Black Flag and The Doors! I just uploaded it… http://rapidshare.com/files/235210805/Zachary_Scribe-The_Eisenhower_Doctrine.mp3.html

    The beat is cool on that Zachary Scribe track – not really feelin' the rapping, though. The sampleage is ridiculous,though! Thanks for posting.

    And thanks for the comments, fellas.

    I never spent too much time actually listening to them, but always felt Black Sabbath was definitely tight. The whole band was sharp and the drummer could get busy. Diamond D used that "Behind the Wall of Sleep" break many times (eg. A.D.O.R – "Day to Day" Remix, Ultimate Force – "I'm In Effect", Diamond – "Red Light, Green Light," etc.).

    Nice post.

    Really? Wow. That's one of the sickest Cypress Hill beats of all-time.

    Really, really dope blog post, Money Gripp.
    It's funny, I just made the Beatnuts/Sabbath correlation the other day and now this. Props.
    The originality never wanes around here.

    Great job, Money Gripp. Black Sabbath ain't really my cup of tea, but I'm still gonna download this.

    Damn, no Sir Mix A-Lot "Iron Man"?

    The dopest use of Sabbath on a hip-hop track, hands down, is in Kid Frost's "Smoke". Nice use of the "Wall of Sleep" drums, with some of Geezer's basslines from his 'Bassically" solo.

    Check it here:

    Damn c-town, you beat me to it. I still love to hear Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Iron Man.


  12. Cenzi Stiles says:

    "Smoke" by Kid Frost also uses "Behind the Wall of Sleep"

    And they cut it up much nicer…

    That beat on "Sick" is filthy.

    Fucking Niggers, stay away from Black Sabbath and Rock. You don’t deserve to listen to real music, stay listening to your vile and meaningless shit.
