With the explosion of hip-hop in the ’90s, Kool & the Gang’s incredible catalog of grooves made them DJ favorites. They were second only to R&B icon James Brown as a source for rap music samples.
Today, the group enjoys worldwide fame and recognition and a fan base that spans generations, due in part to the groups widely sampled catalogs. Kool & the Gang’s drum beats, bass, guitar and signature horn lines lace the tracks of numerous artists, including the Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Cypress Hill and P. Diddy. Kool & the Gang is by far the most sampled band in hip-hop.
