The Mohawks

Going to take it back today with some old classic organ funk by the Mohawks. This track "The Champ" from '68 is one of the most used samples in hip-hop. Artists who have used this sample include EPMD, Eric B. and Rakim, De La, Shadow, and Big Daddy Kane. The opening blaring organ has been used in so many tracks, but the whole track is extremely funky and a great dance track to get the party movin'. This version is off vinyl so it keeps that great poppy, fuzzy sound.
