Today on the show, we did an assisted listen to Girl Talk aka Gregg Gillis's latest album, Feed the Animals. Gillis is a mashup artist who samples just about everything you could imagine.

So here's our challenge to you BPP listeners: name as many samples as you can in this song, "Like This."



Cheaters as always can go to Wikipedia.

I love BPP- listen to it every morning when I am not late for work!
these are the samples i recognized - and i'm too lazy to wiki, so it's just what i caught:
Soul II Soul- "back to life"
Beastie boys- "body movin'
LL Cool J - "Mama said knock you out"
Mya and ODB- "Ghetto Superstar'
Diana Ross - "Upside Down" (i think it's her)
K7-"here comes the high steppa" just a short cut of it
Little Mama or who ever does that Lipgloss song.

I'm not worthy. I thought I had caught a few obscure ones (the 3 second sample of En Vogue) but you guys are great.
