Rocket Man: Artists Who Have Sampled Elton John

Other than his performance of "Stan" with Eminem at the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards and his appearance on Kanye West's "All of the Lights," rock star Elton John has not had much prominence in the rap game, so it was surprising when, earlier this week, in an interview with Rolling Stone, the U.K.-bred singer/songwriter said that he'd love to incorporate hip hop into his music. "I just don't know how to do it," the legend admitted. Perhaps also surprising is that there's certainly a myriad of hip hop artists who could help him figure it out, given how often his music has been sampled in rap already. Read on for examples of rappers who've borrowed from Sir Elton.
