K-Os hears those Footsteps In The Dark

Many, many, many artists have sampled The Islet Brothers. So when I decided to pick my favorite Isley Brothers samples for this week’d seven o clock sample segment, this song was a no-brainer!

“Footsteps in the Dark” was released in 1977 by The Isley Brothers as an album track featured on the group’s double-platinum album, Go For Your Guns. While it may have not achieved the Billboard success many of their other hits have, it have become a Hip Hop staple since 1993, when Ice Cube sampled this track for “Today Was A Good Day”

Cube is not the only Hip Hop artists to sample this R&B classic, check out this list of others who have jumped on this track…

J Dilla “Won’t Do”

Slum Villiage “Call Me”

and of course, this morning’s sample example…

K-Os ” Heaven Only Knows REMIX”
