    I've seen Jazzy Jeff live, but I think he just played the youtube video that explains this sample. And nobody got it.

    True, watched the YouTube vid explaining how it was done n feel a whole lot better now!

    LΛZER said 3 years ago:

    haha thats exactly the reason this sample was very hard to find, even if some people knew it.

    havoc just did a lil more than just pressing loop ;)

    HA! Maybe for YOU....

    This definitely deserves the #1 sample slot. It's an amazing beat and the sample flipping was so well concealed it took over a decade for it to be discovered!

  • Peetz
    Peetz said 4 years ago:

    Holy s***, that's magnificent! I've always been curious about the origins of this sample.

  • Sil
    Sil said 4 years ago:

    Ooh snap! I always believed I could really hear it in Thackery... I'm shook

  • lgee6271
    lgee6271 said 4 years ago:

    A whole load of people and me always knew it was this and kept mad quiet. We even mislead n****s with that Thackary joint. Remember Pete from Dusty Fingers? ANyway, don't be so proud of yall selves. Y'all the late girl to the party.

    Ooooh. There goes Thackery...

  • Buzz-Duh
    Buzz-Duh said 4 years ago:

    This is definitely the real sample! And everyone thought Havoc was full of it when he said everyone had the sample wrong (referring to "Thackery Meets Faculty")! I knew it was suspicious since you couldn't down pitch "Thackery" to match "Shook One Pt II" accurately.

  • JAY Gumb$
    JAY Gumb$ said 4 years ago:

    Why are people not discussing this? If this is the sample then Thackery Meets Faculty has to go.
