Why do we like this?
So many times you hear the term "legendary" used to describe groups of generations past, and you kind of feel like you can't question that, even though you might not really know for sure.

The Ohio Players were a funk band from the 70s that made music that defined a generation. Then, kids conceived to their music used them, and others like them, to make music that defined their generation. I'd say they qualify to be described by the term in question.

I'm no expert on them or their amazingly nicknamed guitarist, Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner, but I do know every time I put one of their records on the turntable, I notice another sample I'd forgotten about. The most well known sample the Ohio Players ever fathered may be "Funky Worm," from their Pleasure album. Everyone from NWA to J Dilla has flipped the song.

In light of the recent passing of Sugarfoot, Karriem Riggins, drummer and producer extraordinaire, has revisited the hallowed sample to flip it in tribute to the late guitarist. He loops it just right and adds chops just so, keeping the sample completely recognizable and in its original funk, perhaps to show that Sugarfoot and the rest of the Players had found a timeless pocket way back when.
