STOP! Hammer Time!
Normally I don’t include sampled music on the site but according to Wikipedia Rick James was not originally credited:
Rick James sued Hammer for infringement of copyright, as the song basically consists of the prominent opening riff of “Super Freak”, which is constantly repeated throughout. The suit was settled out of court when Hammer agreed to credit James as co-composer, effectively cutting James in on the millions of dollars the record was earning. James was accordingly credited as a co-author.
