Sound of the funky drummer
A reference to the seminal James Brown song of that name, the drum break of which (performed by Clyde Stubblefield) is sampled on this song and countless other hip-hop songs as well. Here the most famous break beat of all time here
It’s important to note that Marley Marl introduced a production-style that included a lot of funk samples, in the late 80’s. Because of this, people like Eric B & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap and even Public Enemy itself started rapping on breaks like ‘Funky Drummer’.
