Wasn't really sure how to phrase this in the title so sorry if it's confusing, but basically what are some of the most creative uses of a sample in a good hip hop instrumental that you know of?

A well known example of what I mean by "creative use of sample(s)" would be Shook Ones which uses 3 samples that by themselves sound almost nothing like Shook Ones, but through some amazing work by Havoc combine to make up one of the greatest beats of all time. So ITT I'm looking for beats that just make you go "wow, how the hell did they get from point A (samples) to point B (instrumental)"

For those that don't know what he's talking about.

Amazing use of samples by Havoc, manipulating sounds into something completely new.

If you want complex, sophisticated collages of samples then look no further than early Prince Paul work for De la Soul.

As far as just impressive flips...

Pete Rock flipping Tom Scott's "Today" for "They Reminisce Over You".

A-Plus speeding up Billy Cobham's "Heather" to make "93 'til Infinity".

Just Blaze's insane chopping/tapping out of Rick James' "Super Freak" for Jay-Z's "Kingdom Come".


Also this...

"May Contain Peanuts (Justo's Lament)"

Cool

The question seems open ended, which means Im going to take it in a non hip hop way.

I was impressed with the stuff Tim Hecker and Haxaan Cloak did. Taking a bunch of unrelated inorganic and organic noise, patching them together, and forming a melody. Some of my favorite sampling of the year.
