I didn't see these album credits anywhere in here.  Figured I'll do my part and add something.

Yeah thanks, I didn't realize how many samples were on it. That was at a time when people were dissing the West for the generous use of samples, yet there's samples on all but 1 of the songs. Still it's my favorite East Coast album of all time.
