 If you want indie samples with hot rap lyrics you've gotta check out Tha 446. Particularly "Prince of the Rodeo" ( "Megamayne" ( and "My What is Like Whoa" (

 What about Depeche Mode's line about when he has drugs it "brings out the thuuuug in me."

 So what exactly are those samples? I can't quite detect them. They're probably really obvious, I just can't tell cause I'm really fucking tired.

 RAPPERS: please use Morrissey going "You just haven't earned it yet baby" as the hook in your next "smacking down punk MCs" track. Thank you.

 The Prince of the Rodeo track samples The Unicorns & Megamayne samples the Nintendo game of similar name (I guess that isn't germane, but it' a Nintendo sample!). They've also sampled Destroyer & some others I can't think of right now.

 I think that Radiohead's "I Might Be Wrong" would make good sampling material (the beat and guitar riff especially). Especially if they looped in Thom Yorke's voice in as he sings "I might be wrong" then moans inaudably for a while. Could sound creepy if someone did a hip-hop track based around it.
