The journey of a sample

This samples journey starts with this beat I heard a few years ago by Swedish beatmakers The Studio4Cruw aka Shadow.People, who have 97 beats you can listen to on there site ranging from 1:00 to 4:00min.

They entitled their song "2 black barettas" added a drum beat that sort of sounds like banging on a table or something, plus some nice crisp hand claps.

And then of course I heard the sample most recently in the Jay Z song
"Empire state of mind"

And where did it orignialy come from? It came from the The Moments "Love On A Two Way Street"

Here's an excellent parody of Jay Z's song/video! The Dude is crazy looking with that hair/facial hair
