Eric B is one FUNKY PRESIDENT!


Time for another 7 o clock sample… and in celebration of the EVOLUTION OF HIP HOP MONTH here on 88NINE, I’ve decided to focus on Rap’s favorite source of samples…
JAMES BROWN!


SEVEN O CLOCK SAMPLE presents…
The James Brown Samples!

One of rap’s best albums of all time ( in my opinion ) is Eric B and Rakim’s PAID IN FULL.
This album features some of hip hops most progressive songs of the area, including ERIC B IS PRESIDENT.

That’s classic rap hit, was inspired by James Brown’s FUNKY PRESIDENT.

Here is some classic Soul Train footage of that funky cut!
