[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's time for round two! On our inaugural edition of "Who Sampled It Better?" I asked the audience to vote on the producer and/or rapper who made the best use of a loop in a song, and last week I shared the results. That's given me a couple of weeks to come up with four new breaks for you the reader to listen to and judge.

I don't expect this to be easy. In fact the only way we're going to get decisive answers is if as many of you share or retweet this article out there as possible. We need a large voting pool so that your favorite doesn't hit or miss by just one vote. Every response counts!

1.) Lou Donaldson - "It's Your Thing"

* Brand Nubian - "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down"

* Lord Finesse - "Stop Sweating the Next Man"

2.) Quincy Jones - "Snow Creatures"

* Compton's Most Wanted - "Def Wish II"

* Gang Starr - "ALONGWAYTOGO"

3.) The J.B.'s - "(It's Not the Express) It's the J.B.'s Monaurail"

* EPMD - "Let the Funk Flow"

* Nas - "Nastradamus"

4.) Bobbi Humphrey - "Jasper Country Man"

* Digable Planets - "Blowing Down"

* Ice-T - "New Jack Hustler"
