This week on Seven o'Clock sample, we are looking back the the music of New Orleans funk pioneer Eddie Bo.

Eddie's grooves have been sampled time and time again, but today we are not looking back at a drum loop or melody, but a scream!

Check out the first 3 seconds of his hit "Hook and Sling".



Oh may that is FUNKY!

This phrase has been sampled and scratched by many artists over the years.

DJ Shadow, Q-Bert, LL Cool J and even Justin Timberlake have all used this phrase in their songs.

Check out the cuts on this Wild Pitch throwback from the U.M.C.s
