Video: DJ Enuff’s Hip-Hop Fun Fact (“Reservoir Dogs”)

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Enuff explains how, back in ’98, Isaac Hayes asked his opinion about whether he should allow Jay to sample “The Theme From Shaft” for what would eventually become “Reservoir Dogs”. He reasons that just maybe if he had told Isaac something like, “nah, don’t do it, Jay-Z’s a chump”, the song may have never happened.

So who ended up with the best verse on the track? I’ve always been of the opinion that it’s between Jay and Styles, but I’d probably lean towards Jay. That’s one argument that will go on forever.
