Rest in peace to George Duke. The multi-talented jazz musician died at the age of 67 yesterday, after a battle with Leukemia. Duke’s music was a landmark presence in hip-hop, having been sampled by artists like A Tribe Called Quest, Ice Cube, Common, Slum Village, Spice 1, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Black Hippy and many more. He is gone but not forgotten. Here’s a playlist of some of our favorite hip-hop songs that sampled Duke’s work. Related: Celebrating the music of Roy Ayers.
