A Sampling Sport

peMy appreciation for James Brown comes directly from Public Enemy. Sure, I dig a James Brown song or two, I own The CD of JB (Sex Machine & Other Soul Classics), but I prefer my JB sampled by PE.

I mentioned yesterday the dominance of James Brown samples in the Public Enemy catalogue. Thanks to Wikipedia, I put together a list of these samples. I don't think it's complete, but it's a very good start.
