Okay, so we voted and decided on a new feature for Thursday to go with the Tuesday Back Jam. We call it They Sampled Thursday and it's not a weekly feature but when you see a Back Jam that has a sample we will post a They Sampled Thursday with the album and sample for the original artist.

For each They Sampled Thursday SIMY will dawn his Professor SIMY look at and diagram how the weeks Back Jam is connected to the sample. Sometimes the samples are obvious and sometimes they are a bit more obscure. Above SIMY diagrams how Otis Redding's 1967 Tramp was sampled in the 1985 Tramp by Salt n' Pepa, okay that is a bit obvious but did you also catch that it's also sample in (I Know) I'm Losing You by the Temptations? Lucky you have SIMY. Tramp is also sampled in 1990 song Rampage by EPMD, the 1991 song Let, Let Me In by De La Soul and the 1992 song 7 by Prince.

Can't get enough samples? Check out our album series Who Sampled Who?
