Rap Quiz: Bet You Can't Name That Sample (Pt. 1)


Fuck Michael McDonald. Sampling's the best! I've kind of been obsessed with sampling lately--well, more so than usual-- so I figured, why not turn my flip fascination into our latest quiz topic. We did this way back in the RefinedHype days, but there's always more samples to master so I'm bringing it back. Why? Because sampling is the greates, that's why!

Below you will find 10 songs that, at one point or another, have been flipped into hip-hop dopeness. Your job is to figure out what famous hip-hop song sampled 'em. I know samples are often used more than once (because sampling is the coolest), so I picked the most popular, obvious flip; I'm not talking about a flip from some obscure trap rapper.
