great short video: Marley Marl, the producer of LL Cool J's 'Mama Said Knock You Out', recreates the beat, explaining its component elements and releasing a never-heard-before snippet of alternate LL vocals: "he says, 'hey, I got a sample that is so dope.' He pulls out Sly and the Family Stone..."
LL Cool J v. The Prodigy: Momma Said Kick Ass," a mashup by DJ Top Cat of LL Cool J's "Mamma Said Knock You Out" and from Kick Ass, The Prodigy's "Stand Up", which itself heavily samples from the trumpet melody line of Manfred Mann's "One Way Glass."
"Knock Out Eileen," a rather cool mash-up by Thriftshop XL of "Come On Eileen" (Dexy's Midnight Runners) and "Mama Said Knock You Out" (LL Cool J). (slyt)
