Hip-Hop Tracks That Sample Funkadelic’s Let’s Take It To The Stage

The Y! Music Playlist Blog (NEW)

Next to James Brown there doesn't exist a more sampled funk act than the mighty Funkadelic. Their grooves are legendary, and the nasty, infectious beats they've created have been cut up and re-assembled into a myriad of hip-hop hits. Funkadelic is directly, and indirectly responsible for more booty shakin' than most other whole genres can claim.

For this playlist we're examining tracks that sample parts of Funkadelic's classic 1975 album Let's Take It To The Stage.

The album peaked at #14 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and #102 on The Billboard 2oo, but important samples from the record have reached the top 10 multiple times. Let's Take It To The Stage continues to live on as young producers discover it, and use it to create brand new art.

This playlist is an excellent collection of old skool hip-hop. Take note of how Funkadelic has left their footprint.
