461726, Hip-Hop Movie Sample Game
Posted by Big Chief Rumbletummy, Fri Jul-10-09 10:34 AM

This is interesting…I was just listening to a CD called “Hey That’s Funny!”. It’s a comedy compilation CD consisting of stand-up comedy routines and skits from various comedians dating from the 60’s through to the 90’s. There’s some hilarious stuff on there, a lot of stuff I’ve heard before and a lot that I hadn’t, but that’s not the impetus of this post. What’s so interesting is that on 3 straight tracks, tracks I had never heard before, there was a very recognizable (to me anyway) old school-era-to-golden age-era hip-hop sample. 3 straight tracks I got THAT feeling on.

It has been quite a while since I got that good old familiar feeling of “sample recognition”. You know that feeling? Old hip-hop heads know it, they have to. Its law somewhere in some jurisdiction. Or maybe its science. Or science law maybe. I don’t know…I’m getting ahead of myself here. Sample Recognition is that thing your brain does where as the bit that’s been sampled is playing, you stop whatever you’re doing and your head swerves upward to the right, sort of like a dog that’s caught the scent of a decidedly rancid garbage can 4 blocks away. A smile inadvertently spreads across the breadth of your face, earlobe to earlobe, and without any deliberate precognitive notion, you finish the sample by either saying it aloud or mouthing it. After the sample is completed, individual responses vary**.

So I sez to myself…”Self”, I sez…”it’s been awhile since you’ve given these philistines a game to play”. And it has. It’s been a while since I’ve handed out any Rumbletummy Phun Bux (redeemable for 2 “LOL” or 1 “LMBCRAOROFL” replies to any post***) and they are piling up around the teepee. Let’s see who’s got the chops. The rules are simple: I’ll provide a list of source material from any number of media: movies, television, albums, etc. Just not any other song samples. If you want to play, you reply with the name of either the song, the group, the actual sample, or any combination of the three. Some are quite specific while others, like Richard Pryor, Wu-Tang, & Scarface, will have oodles of mentions…but so what!??!

The poster with the most correct replies wins!****

"If I knew it was this kinda party I would stuck my dick in the potato salad!"
462711, Animaniacs/Hieroglyphics - 'Oakland Blackouts'
Posted by Numba_33, Thu Jul-16-09 10:18 AM
I have no idea which episode it was, but the sample is from the German sounding doctor character that would sometimes get antagonized by the Wacko, Yakko, and Dot characters on the show. The vocal sample is of course the little blurb that comes on at the beginning of the track. I was stunned when the cartoon was playing the background to whatever I was doing and I recognized the sample. And I'm more than certain the track pre-dates when the Animaniacs show was re-released on DVD, which means that Domino or whoever in Hiero had to have recorded that on VHS to get the sample for the song.
