20. Long Live The Kane - Big Daddy Kane (1989) 20 samples (who sampled.com)

21. Eazy Duz It – Eazy E (1988) 20 samples (whosampled.com)

22. Criminal Minded - Boogie Down Productions (1987) 15 samples (whosampled.com)


This is what I've got so far. I need you guys to help out. You can go to either Wikipedia, whosampled.com or hiphopisread.com to find out how many samples are on an album.

However, the problem with who sampled.com is that they count interpolations as samples. For example; they say Criminal Minded sampled Hey Jude by the Beatles when its clearly not a sample, he re-sang the lyrics.
