He jacked another and another, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder
Set some R & B over the track for "Deep Cover" (187!)

from Black Star – Children's Story Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Two staples of the “Bad Boy” production style that Puffy introduced (and had huge success with) in the mid-90s.

  1. Wholesale jacking of mainstream pop/soul hits instead of digging in the crates. The Diana Ross samples in “Mo Money Mo Problems and “Cold Rock A Party” are prime examples.

  2. Using Hip Hop beats as the foundation for R&B songs. See
    Total’s “No One Else” (based on BDP’s “South Bronx”) or Case’s “Touch Me Tease Me” (based on Schoolly’s “PSK”) for examples.

This isn’t a shot at Dre. Mos is using “Deep Cover” as an example of the kind of track that might be jacked for an R&B record.
