I think it's just a case of fame. Peter Piper was the first song on the album Raising Hell, which is just about the most important and influential rap album of them all. So I guess this is the most famous use of the sample just cause it is more famous as a song...
I don't quite get it, this song is widely used in breakbeat and sample culture, but this is the one track that is known for sampling this song. Peter Piper is a tight track but, what's so different between the way this song used it compared to how other songs used it?
