“Funky Worm” by The Ohio Players is undoubtedly one of the most sampled songs in hip-hop’s long history, the iconic synthesizer solo has a place in the hearts of many West Coast rap aficionados as it’s been including in tracks by Dr. Dre, Game and Too $hort to name a few.

An even longer tribute project by Riggins, ?uestlove and similar musicians would be even better (Fingers crossed for someone with some clout is reading this post and runs with the idea. I don’t even need credit).
Peep the tribute below.
