Name That Sample #5

Steely Dan

[Edit] Nice call, Ivan! The original sample is Steely Dan “Peg,” used by Prince Paul to construct De La Soul’s “Eye Know” off 3 Feet High & Rising. De La fans and sample heads should stay tuned for a separate post soon dedicated to the song.

Okay, I’m forced to give a hint for this one because Kweli re-Tweeted my statement about hip-hop’s uninformed fanbase.

I’d wager that at least that percentage has NO clue who Steely Dan is, let alone that the band has provided some of the genre’s most recognizable samples.

Shit, youngins probably thought “Steely Dan” was just a dude’s name, perhaps a porn star they saw on YouPorn the other night in between drooling over Sonic the Glass Jaw Charles Hamilton videos. Come to think of it, I bet I could make a killing in the adult film industry as “Steely Dom.” Hmm..

Anyways.

I assume this one will be more difficult the younger you are, but try to guess the 1989 single inspired by the jazz-rock duo. An e-trophy if you know the producer, however that should be easy once you guess the track.

I’ve got a follow-up post coming as soon as someone hits up the comment section with the right answer soon, when I approve the comments. Best of luck!
