Hotbox #13: The Bar-Kays "Gotta Groove" LP

The Bar-Kays were a Stax Records house band, as well as an instrumental recording act for the label. All but two of the original members were killed in the same 1967 plane accident that claimed Otis Redding's life. The next year, a new line-up was formed and the group continued to release albums up until the late 1980's.

Instead of featuring just one sampled song in the mix, I've included several songs from the Bar-Kays 1969 instrumental "Gotta Groove" album and some of the hip-hop tracks that have sampled them.

1. In The Hole - The Bar-Kays
2. Dead Men Tell No Lies - Compton's Most Wanted
3. Hoes - Yo Yo feat. Threat
4. Ring The Alarm - Fu-Schnickens
5. Rock Stars - Non-Phixion
6. Crime Pays - Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo
7. Living In The World Today - Genius/GZA
8. Humpin' - The Bar-Kays
9. The Choice Is Yours - Black Sheep
10. AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted - Ice Cube
11. Real Estate - Cypress Hill
12. Jiving 'Round - The Bar-Kays
13. Ya Lil' Crumbsnatchers - Del Tha Funkee Homosapien
