Samples & Covers
Most notably, “Y’all ready for this?” has been made globally famous as a sample in the song “Get Ready for This” by early-’90s dance group 2 Unlimited. That song is arguably the most played opening song for arena-based sporting events. The opening of “Get Ready for This” is also used in a 2004 South Park episode in which candidates for school mascot are introduced in the school’s gymnasium. The song was sampled by Eazy-E for the chorus of his diss song against Dr. Dre, “Real Muthafuckin’ G’s” in 1993.
A cover version of “It’s Funky Enough” was recorded by the hip-hop fusion group Detox Junky in September of 2012 and the group hopes to include the track on their full length album Acts of Terror, and release it as a single.
