Tiger Sauce: Pop Goes The Weasel's sample of Sledgehammer

"You stole somebody's record and ya' looped it, looped it" so say the lyrics of 3rd Bass's "Pop Goes The Weasel". This song and video are a direct attack on Vanilla Ice (referencing his hit Ice Ice Baby which heavily sampled Queen/David Bowie's "Under Pressure". For payback, 3rd Bass makes the claim that a sampled record doesn't make a hit. You have to have the lyrics to back it up. Watch below.
