Stumbled upon (some classic soundbites, and yes, that’s Richard Pryor pulling the gun on Pretty Toney!) this song yesterday:

Willie Hutch – I Choose You

We heard that somewhere before, right? UGK sampled it for their comeback single Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You), featuring Outkast. Even though it’s a good song, it was already played out by then, in my opinion, having been sampled with more heart on Mathematics’ Pimpology 101, featuring Buddah Bless, and before that on Project Pat’s Choose U. But I knew I’d heard that soulful backdrop somewhere even before that. Who was first with it? Mega Montana – and I have to say that he was more creative with it, too; instead of schooling the listeners how to trick women into prostitution and taking their money, his subject was pimping the pen.

Other songs of Willie Hutch’s been sampled before. You might recognize these two?

Willie Hutch – Hospital Prelude Of Love Theme

Willie Hutch – Brothers Gonna Work It Out
