1973’s self titled album by the Skull Snaps is a gritty soul/funk masterpiece littered with hip hop samples. If you’re a hip hop producer, chances are you’ve know this album backwards and forwards. If not, you’ve probably never heard it. If the latter is true, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
Standout tracks include “I’m Your Pimp,” “All Of A Sudden,” “My Hangup Is You,” and “Trespassing.”
