"Funky President"

Kanye West must really be a fan of James Brown's "Funky President." Yeezy has sampled the 1974 released multiple times, including on "Live Fast, Die Young," "Clique" and "New God Flow." It's also been sampled in classics like Eric B. & Rakim's "Eric B. Is President" and N.W.A's "Fuck Tha Police."
