Soul Mann & The Brothers – Bumpy’s Lament

This is the song that the two previous posts sampled.  The sampled section appears at 1:05.  From the Shaft remake album by Soul Mann & The Brothers.   After looking around a bit, it seems like that little bit has been sampled many many times.  They’re all probably dope.
