“We’re gifted and we’re going far.”
It should come as no surprise that more than 20 years later, Audio Two is still milkin’ money from their 1987 track “Top Billin”. Popular phrases and the signature drumbeat from this track have been sampled by Dr. Dre, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, and The Luniz among many others. 50 cent used MC Milk Dee’s phrase, “I Get Money” in the chorus of his 2007 song by the same name and turned it into a hit. In addition to making it to #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Rap Tracks, the song was #14 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007. Nothing beats the original, but a mash-up of these two songs would probably sound great together! What do you think?
