hip-hop heads unite

Ever play this game? For some reason, I seem to do it when I make playlists for the WinAmp on my comp or the GarPod.

Examine the following songs of this list:

1 Gangstarr "You Know My Steez"
Ya know my steeeeeez

2 Nas "The Message"
I never sleep, 'cause sleep is the cousin of death

3 Coca Brovaz (Smif & Wessun) "Black Trump"
Guess who's the black trump?

4 Dilated Peoples "Worst Comes to Worst"
Worst comes to worst, my people come first

5 Chops, Bahamadia, Planet Asia, & Rasco "Special Forces"
We move like special forces, green beret

6 Subterraneous Crew "Word 'Em Up"
word to mother, heard 'em frontin'

7 Royce Da 5'9 "Boom"
It gets tragic like the havoc of a nuclear bomb

8 Jay-Z "Dead Presidents"
I'm out for presidents to represent me

Now, examine this second list. A line from each songs on this list were sampled for the choruses of the songs above.

a. Nas "The World is Yours"
b. Nas "One Love"
c. Nas "NY State of Mind"
d. Mobb Deep "Survival of the Fittest"
e. Mobb Deep "Hell on Earth"
f. Gza "Shadow Boxing"
g. Gangstarr "You Know My Steez"
h. Raekwon "Incarcerated Scarfaces"

Match the two lists with song sampled to the song that uses the sample. (example: a1, b2, etc).

First one to post the correct answers in my comments wins... ummm, something interesting from Japan. Yeah!

Additional +1 bonus points if you can also identify by the name each of the rappers who are saying the chorus lines from the first list.


*blink* *blink*...I better just go and buy a lotto ticket, I might have a better chance of winning that.

8a, 7g, 6e, 3h, 2c, 1f, 4d, 5b

is that close?...
8a, 7g, 6e, 3h, 2c, 1f, 4b, 5d

nice try reg, but I win! now where's my prize! -mel

Reg: 6 of 8 right.

Mel: 6 of 8 right.

It's a tie.
let's see...

4d, 6b, 8a, 2c, 7g, 3h, 1f...5? 5's definitely fr. MD's "Hell On Earth." Did you accidentally / intentionally omit / swap that one for "Quiet Storm?" Tricky!
Whoops! Bonus points for Reg... yes, "Quiet Storm" should be "Hell on Earth". I'll make the correction... heh heh.

Congrats, bro... 8 out of 8.

E-mail me your addy and I'll mail ya your prize... though I might be back in Seattle before it arrives, haha.
