I’m (kinda) sorry for being a day late with this ish!  Bob James has been called the most accidentally famous hip hop star of all time, and it’s all because of this track right here.  Various samples from this one song have been used for tracks by Ghostface, Eric B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Run-DMC, Slick Rick, Jeru the Damaja, Main Source, Organized Konfusion, Onyx, Public Enemy and dozens more.  Nas once said that if he was feeling lazy he could make an entire album comprised of samples from “Nautilus”.  Both a dope track and an essential piece of hip hop history.

Enjoy yall!
