The last James Brown "Who Sampled It Better?" went so nice I decided to do it TWICE. This time we're taking a look at "Get Up Offa That Thing," a chart topping hit from the album of the same name, first released back in 1976.

And here for your listening pleasure are four hip-hop tracks that sampled "Get Up Offa That Thing." After reviewing all of the choices you can vote for the one that did it best!

1.) Boogie Down Productions - "South Bronx"

2.) Kool G. Rap f/ RZA - "Cakes"

3.) Slick Rick - "I Shouldn't Have Done It"

4.) Special Ed - "Neva Go Back"
