The Soul Of Hip-Hop Vol. 1 Cover+Tracklist

Stax has put together a compilation of tracks located in their vast catalogue, cuts that've been sampled by Hip-Hop luminaries that you fuck with. Check out that tracklist, though.

1. 24-CARAT BLACK – “Ghetto: Misfortune’s Wealth”
2. THE EMOTIONS – “Blind Alley”
3. BOOKER T. & THE MGs – “Melting Pot”
4. THE BAR-KAYS – “Humpin’”
5. THE DRAMATICS – “Get Up and Get Down”
6. ISAAC HAYES – “Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic”
7. ISAAC HAYES – “Hung Up On My Baby”
8. DAVID PORTER – “I’m Afraid the Masquerade Is Over”
9. WENDY RENE – “After the Laughter (Comes Tears)”
10. CHARMELS – “As Long As I’ve Got You”
12. RUFUS THOMAS – “Do the Funky Penguin (Part 1)”
13. LITTLE MILTON – “Packed Up and Took My Mind”
14. WILLIAM BELL - “I Forgot To Be Your Lover”

You might not know some of these by name, but you've definitely heard them. Both Biggie and GFK flipped that David Porter track. Isaac Hayes' "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" was used by Public Enemy, Ice Cube and The Game, and I know a host of other cats used a lot of these. Part of why I got into Hip-Hop in the first place was because of producers flipin' samples; it was a way I got to appreciate the originals. And you should, too.

The Soul Of Hip-Hop Vol. 1 drops on April 28th.
