I just found out that the sample for “Mo Money Mo Problems” by Biggie (featuring Puff Daddy and MA$E) came from a Diana Ross song. I cannot believe it took me so long to find this! Anyway, for those of you who haven’t heard Diana’s song already (obviously called “I’m Coming Up”), here it is, along with “Mo Money Mo Problems”. This post is coming about 12 years too late. Due to this discovery, I’ve decided to keep “Hip Hop Samples” series going on Bangers and Mash as well…I’ve since come across a few more that I think you guys will find interesting.
