Today is Patti LaBelle’s 72nd birthday! To celebrate the diva’s birthday, I’ve compiled three hip-hop songs that sampled her music that are worth giving another listen.
1. Nelly ft Kelly Rowland – Dilemma – This classic song featured a sample from her classic “Love Need and Want You ” and was released in 2002. In addition to the music video showcasing the natural chemistry between the rapper and the Destiny’s child member, it also featured a cameo from Patti starring as Rowland’s mother.
2. Bizzy Bone – Nobody Can Stop Me – When the Bone Thugs and Harmony member went solo, he chose her classic “If Only You Knew” to speak on some of the trials and tribulations he faced in his life. The song has the classic Bone sound many fans loved and is an overlooked gem.
3. Lloyd- Lay It Down Remix ft Jeezy and R. Kelly – Like Nelly and Kelly Rowland’s “Dilemma”, this song also features a sample of “Love Need and Want You”.
