Diggin' in the Crates with... Volume One: The RZA

Yes, yes y'all: I present to you the first volume in our "Diggin' in the Crates With..." series with a selection of samples from early-to-mid-'90's RZA productions. As to the tracklisting and ID3 tags, I've come up with a way to provide the info for you... but it'll take some effort. Rather than choosing between (A) including the titles of the songs that sampled the originals - like we do with our sample sets, or (B) merely posting the original track titles - without the hip hop titles, I've decided to do the following: I'll post only the original titles, but I'm leaving it up to you (yes, you), the hip hop nation, to figure out which tracks sample what and post it in the comment section. Do you know which RZA-produced track samples "As Long As I've Got You" by The Charmels? C'mon, this is an easy one... If you know it, post it in the comment section and when I get the chance, I'll put the info into this original post - and give you credit for it too! Fair enough? Let us begin...

UPDATE: As promised, here's the list of Wu-tracks and their respective sample tracks. Thanks to everybody who participated!

Here they are, in order of course:

Props to Tyler for submitting the info for ALL OF THE TRACKS! WOW! Props to Thessolonious and Fl1p for info on track #2
