Young Music Lovers! Can you name what recent hit songs are borrowing from the following old RAP songs?

Swass -- Sir Mix A Lot

Supersonic -- JJ Fad

I Wonder If I Take You Home -- Lisa Lisa & the Cult Jam

Please list the new song & artist.

Isn't that what rap was criticized for in the begining? I guess everything comes full circle. I think the only difference is rap used popular songs to remind you of/celebrate the original creativity, while the artist using the music mentioned above knows that teenagers know nothing about the originals.

I have to explain to my 11 year-old why I know the rhythm or WORDS to a song that was newly released.

Keep the HISTORY of music ALIVE!
