      Drum break ? Sounds straight like gritty E-mu SP-12 sampling drummachine to me, with the single drum hits programmed in the machine. BD and SD at least sound like being sampled by themselves.

      There was the Ultimate Breaks & Beats series as a CD-Box set if I remember ? Just for a start.
      Of course only 'common' material on it.

    • The drums were sampled from Roxanne Shante- "Payback". Produced by Lawrence Goodman aka LG on Pop Art Records. Also, if you are using software for music production you can find the kit in the vsti plugin Wusikstation collection entitled: Drumellenium [ kit name ] ------> (Pay em back.wusikprst) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKYYCcUd0Mw. Hope this help you because I've asked this question before as well. This was the only other record beside Asher D and Daddy Freddy, who actually sampled this drum loop from Roxanne Shante.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pfub-Ch5970
    • The kick drum sample used by NWA for "Dopeman" & it's remix are from "Impeach the President" by the Honey Drippers. However, you can only get the same artifacts of noise in the kick sample from Marley Marl's samples because his Honey Drippers Record was in a certain condition and he may have added heavy compression processing effect and eq to it. The best way is to sample the kick from "The Bridge" by MC Shan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS4RpBR0Zn0 . You'll have to truncate the tail end off of the kick and apply a small amount of decay in order to make the it sound tight. You'll hear the same artifacts in the kick from Marley's kick as you will from Dr. Dre's and Lawrence Goodman's (LG). Lawrence and Marley collaborated together at one point and time so I'm sure Marley gave Lawrence the samples on disk for the EMU SP 1200. The snare sample used by Dr. Dre of NWA & Lawrence Goodman producer for the Roxanne Shante song could have been a combination of two sounds. The Honey Drippers snare drum and The Headhunters snare drum with Hall Reverb and Gate effects. The Headhunters- "God made me funky" . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGmNgS4wj4E. Since Roxanne Shante's "Payback" does have a portion of the Headhunters intro drums blended in by the dj often in her song it may be a combination of its snare too that make up the snare drum sample. I've twitted Marley about it and asked Lawrence Goodmans daughter to contact him about it but to no avail.
