Interview: Prince Paul's 10 Favorite Sample Flips

The man, the legend, the innovator and just a cat that knows how to put together an album like no other, AKA Prince Paul talks about his top ten favorite sample re-workings ever in the the game....

Courtesy of EgoTrip we get some pretty dope commentary from a guy that I wish was still around a lot more in Hip-Hop teaching these young producers how it's really done...


Prince Paul on Jeru The Damaja's "Come Clean": 
To me, samples freak me out most when I have the record myself but never picked up on what another producer did. This was used by Premier for Jeru’s famous “Come Clean” and is one of those cases. I was like “Yo, I’ve had that record forever but not ever even thought of using it!” No one knew around at the time really knew what it was and the first chance I got, I ran up to Preemo and said, “Shelly Manne!” [laughs] He was like, “How’d you know?” and I was like, “Just let your lawyers know that I know what that sample is!” [laughs]. That song is now obviously classic but that sample is nuts.
