Betty Davis: Rap Superstar

betty_davis

Betty Davis is one of the toughest, baddest chicks we’ve ever seen or heard. Her genre-busting style set her apart from the pack, and changed the game as we know it. It comes as no surprise that her raw powerful beats have been sampled by some of the rap game’s finest – she’s hard as nails! So in honor of They Say I’m Different and Betty Davis being back in print, here are a few of our favorite songs that have sampled the queen of funk.

Ice Cube’s “Once Upon A Time In The Projects” samples Betty Davis’ “Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him ” (from the album They Say I’m Different)

Method Man/Ludacris’ “Rodeo” samples Betty Davis’ “If I’m In Luck I Might Get Picked Up” (from the album Betty Davis)

H.W.A.’s “Trick Is A Trick” samples Betty Davis’ “Anti-Love Song” (from the album Betty Davis)

Redman’s “Jersey Yo!” samples Betty Davis’ ”Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him ” (from the album They Say I’m Different)
