Rap Quiz: Bet You Can't Name That Sample (Pt. 3)


I was going to change up this quiz already, but after seeing Pete Rock live this week, there is no way in hell I could not do a sample quiz. Unless I'm visited by the ghost of Dilla this weekend I really will change up next week's quiz from samples to....something...but for now, it's on again. 

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, so I picked the most popular, obvious flip; I'm not talking about a flip from some obscure struggle rapper or your cousin.
