T. Drake Presents...

Arguably (and probably) one of the most sampled songs in the history of hip-hop,"The Funky Drummer", is a smooth mix of that 1970's jazz funk with a kick for all the Cool Cats. Listen for the breakdown (after James Brown counts to 4 the first time) and you'll hear the soul behind some hip hop classics like "Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J, "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy and more recently "The Cool" by Lupe Fiasco.

See if you can hear it ;)

    On the sample list, Streets on Fire samples the Amen Break which is similar, if not the same as, Funky Drummer. Go to 1:44 to hear it. Side note: On the Villa Manifesto album Young RJ sampled funky drummer.
