For Pete’s Sake: 7 More Songs That Used The Same Samples As Pete Rock

Producers are quite protective over their craft. They take pride in finding a diamond in the rough to sample and flip it into a Hip-Hop masterpiece. That’s why Pete Rock was so pissed that Lupe Fiasco jacked his “T.R.O.Y.” sample without asking permission. All of the hullabaloo made us think about any other times Pete Rock and other producers have been Sampling Eskimo Twins. Let’s take a look at seven other tracks that feature samples Pete utilized as well. We hope this doesn’t make him mad.

Nope, these aren’t all the songs in human existence Pete Rock sampled that other artists have sampled…but it’s a nice little start to get you guys going. Dig into your respective crates and add any more that come to mind.
