Gave Her No Food, Strictly Similak
The rap game is funny. Saxophonist Tom Scott exemplifies this nicely.
Who would of thought that everytime you've bumped "T.R.O.Y." or Black Sheep's "Similak Child," you would be indirectly jocking Tom Scott?
Well, you were. In addition to having a long career both solo and with his L.A. Express, Tom Scott produced the theme songs for Family Ties, "Starsky & Hutch", the "Academy Awards", the "Emmy Awards", the "PeopleÂs Choice Awards", "Comic Relief", the "Carol Burnett Show", the "Pat Sajak Show", and released "Today" on The Honeysuckle Breeze. At the time, in 1968, he was 19, and probably didn't realize that "Today" featured two very different sounding samples, that Black Sheep and Pete Rock would craft into respective hit and mega-mega-hit (critically speaking at least.)
Enjoy Tom Scott's "Today."

PS: That list of scores is unreal. Has any of heard his scores less than 100 times in your life? I've probably heard the Family Ties one 100 times alone. And, the "Similak" sample was also utilized on Masta Ace's "Saturday Night Live (LA Jay Remix),"
