Rizzle Kicks' hit song sample had been on Fatboy Slim's computer for "years"

Rizzle Kicks have revealed that the inspiration behind their smash hit 'Mama Do The Hump' had been sitting around on Fatboy Slim's computer for years.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Rizzle Kicks' Jordan Stephens said that Norman Cook had been playing the duo some beats and samples on his computer.

And he said Cook was pleased that they liked the eventual inspiration for 'Mama Do The Hump' - because the "hook had been around in his computer for ages and nobody else wanted it". He said:

"Norman probably made the beat to Mama 10 years ago. He has all these beats and samples just sitting on his computer, so he played us a whole load of them. There were some he said we couldn't have and then he played this sample of a woman called Bobbie Gentry. As soon as we heard that we were like: 'Let's go for it.' Norm was glad because he said the hook had been around in his computer for ages and nobody else wanted it."

As previously reported, Rizzle Kicks confirmed their desire to follow in the footsteps of famous fan Norman Cook and help sponsor Brighton Football Club.
