One of the most sampled hip hop songs in hip hop?

I know a lot of people in my age range (20s) have never heard this song, but if you look at the wikipedia page, there are so many songs that sample lyrics and audio from this song, that most people have probably heard at least some of it. I just thought this was pretty cool, even though this is an MMA forum. (Ignore the video, just listen to the audio... the video has something to do with flashlights and such, I don't really get it).

You could have just posted a link to the wiki page rather than copy and pasting it.

LoL, I'm a nerd and it pisses me off when people calling anything over a certain age old school. It's like saying stuff from the renaissance happened in the stone age.
