Yesterday we lost a Philly legend in Billy Paul, a man that was a part of the Gamble And Huff era.
Many hip-hop producers sampled his catalogue, which was sampled an astonishing 124 times!
“Let’s Make a Baby” was sampled by various artists including those who just came out the past few years, which goes to show the longevity of Paul’s music!
“When Love Is New” was sampled by 9th Wonder, immediately paid homage, he is one of man producers to incorporate Paul’s samples into hip-hop tracks (which you can read below)
His most famous track “Me And Mrs Jones” was sampled by the likes of Mary J. Blige and Coolio just to name a few!
Your music legacy will live on forever!
