Check The Rhime was ranked number 29 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. The song was released as a single on September 6, 1991 with B-side Skypager. Who else was influenced by this song? In the 90’s, it was common for hip-hop artists to make an old soul or funk sample cool, which would pave the way for an R&B artist to sample the same song and make a hit partially off of sample recognition. Family R&B group Soul IV Real took their cue from Check the Rhime and scored a hit with Candy Rain, which uses the same Minnie Riperton sample of Baby, This Love I Have.
