Oh man, I feel so shallow, when I first saw the headline, I thought about the Wyclef song with Akon...underestimated you Alex, should have known it would have been a classic old school joint. I never owned this 12 inch, but heard it plenty of times, along with this one in the early '80s:

Jellybean Benitez produced the Spicer track it sounds like...which of course makes a nice connection to the Yankees, given his relationship with Madonna:

There's also "C.R.E.A.M" by the Wu Tang Clan, who clipped the "dolla, dolla bill y'all" as well.

2 CPO also blatently bit that track for his only semi-hit in the early 90's. When did beat-biting off of each other become an okay thing? I don't mind mild sampling, but when you just take someone else's track (especially a known hip-hop track) and claim it as your own, that's not ah'ight.
