A remarkable sample on "Guess who's knockin' "

Did you all know that the running background sample is exactly the same line that's on Ice Cube's "Endangered Species (Tales from the darkside)", from his amazing album Amerikkka's most Wanted from 1990. I guess that's Tony M's input

Whosampledwho isn't clear there: did Prince sample Ice Cube's sample or the original song or elements from both (not counting the chant which is not a sample)?
