Bam Bam!: 12 Times Hip-Hop Sampled, Remixed + Flipped Sister Nancy


Madlib – Blades (2001)

Beat-Konducta-Vol.-0_-Earth-Sounds

โ€œBam Bamโ€ may have brought us to the nexus of the sample universe. Let this sink in: California beat maestro Madlib sampled Sister Nancy on โ€œBlades,โ€ an interlude-length instrumental featured on his Stones Throw album, Beat Konducta Vol. 0: Earth Sounds, back in 2001. Fast forward to 2016, and Madlib turns up as the producer of โ€œNo Parties In LAโ€ (a track they actually made together back in 2010) on Kanyeโ€™s The Life of Pablo โ€” an album on which Kanye (and various co-producers) sampled โ€œBam Bamโ€ on โ€œFamous.โ€ Funny how things come full circle.
