As written by Steve 'Flash' Juon, and voted on by THE PEOPLE who read!

I know that there's a potential that including Kanye West's image in this edition of "Who Sampled It Better?" may bias some voters either for or against him in voting for who looped "Expo '83" by The Backyard Heavies better. Personally I'm hoping that's an even split down the middle because that's the kind of person he is as an artist and musician - equally divisive on both sides. Nevertheless when it comes to sampling I'll be the first to admit he has good taste and "Expo '83" is an excellent track.

However Kanye's "Runaway" featuring Pusha T is far from the only producer to sample this funky piano laden classic. Let's look at a full selection of choices to vote on.

1.) Kanye West f/ Pusha T - "Runaway"

2.) Kwest Tha Madd Lad - "I Ain't the Herb"

3.) Nefertiti - "My Soul Good"

4.) Tone Spliff f/ Esoteric, Mac Lethal - "Random Love"

Now let's take a poll: WHO SAMPLED IT BETTER?
We'll have the results next week!
