The extended version of Arrested Developments "Tennessee" also features a sample of Prince's vocal ad libs from the beggining of "Shockadelica" cool

Arrested Development samples "Tennessee" from "Alphabet St." in their song "Tennessee"

Freedom of Soul samples "Dorothy Parker" in one song, forget the title. It's from the album Caught In The Land of Time

MC Hammer liberally used "Soft and Wet" for a song of the same title, as well as "When Doves Cry" in "Pray" (which I loved at the time).

Isn't it Missy Elliot that samples the scream from "Gett Off" in a song?

PM Dawn covers "1999" on the album Jesus Wept.

They also sample "Let's Go Crazy" guitar solo in some song that escapes me. I've tried finding it in my PM Dawn stuff, but can't seem to locate it.

There isn't a musical sample of "The Ladder" in 'Pac's "I Get Around". The credit is there because of the following lyrics:

"You ask why, it don't matter, my pockets got fatter
Now everybody's lookin for the ladder"

The music sample on that track is from Zapp & Roger's "Computer Love".

Also, "2 Live And Die in LA" doesn't sample Prince's "Do Me, Baby", but Meli'sa Morgan's cover version.

Digital Underground & Tupac's track 'Wussup With The Luv' samples 'The Ballad of Dorothy Parker', that's one you missed from your list.

I agree, but it shows how much love 'Pac had for Prince. Matter fact, I had a long conversation with Johnny J (main producer of All Eyez On Me, RIP Johnny) about how he and Pac were both big Prince fans, when I interviewed him at his studio in '06.

Any of y'all here that are Pac fans should check out my tribute to Johnny, you can peep it at http://www.s-endz.com , click the pic that says "Johnny J Remembered".

I forget exactly which song it was, but there was a song on Amerikkka's Most Wanted album Guerrillas In Tha Mist that used the opening scream from Gett Off throughout the entire song.

He also sampled 2 bars of the "Housequake" drum pattern in the middle of "They Put Me In The Mix".

Good point. I've only heard that album once or twice, LONG LONG ago. I would've never remembered that one, yet somehow I knew he had probably sampled Prince more than those couple of times.
