Wow! The origin/evolution story of one of the quintessential Hip-Hop melodies told in a dope montage. Respect Sister Nancy!
The music of reggae legend Sister Nancy has played a pivotal role in Hip-Hop for over 30 years, but she's rarely seen profits from her influence. Recently, Jay-Z sampled Nancy's "Bam Bam" for his track "Bam," the same song Kanye West reworked for his 'The Life of Pablo' cut "Famous." Genius decided to trace the song's evolution from a local hit to a frequently-sampled component of Hip-Hop.
