Lord Finesse Names “Baby, You Nasty” As His 5th Favorite Sample Flip

Lord Finesse: “During the making of Funky Technician I would sit with Premier all day listening to records, trying to pick out loops for the album. I would sit there sometimes til we’d both be nodding off. [laughs] One day he pull out that Young-Holt Unlimited record and as soon as I heard the drums I absolutely lost my mind. I was like, “That’s it right there” – just off the drum loop alone! Man, I didn’t care what he added on top as long as he had that drum loop running. I knew we could come up with something funky.”

“Baby, You Nasty” samples Young-Holt Unlimited – “Wah Wah Man” (Cotillion, 1971)
