ESPN use to air a show called, 'The Life' - I remember it because of it's theme song:
Last Man Standing by Harlem artist, Cash Brown.
The beat of the song includes a classic sample from Aretha Franklin, and oozes east coast hip-hop; it immediately caught my attention the first time I heard it.
Ten years later I consider the song timeless, and thanks to Google was able to find it on YouTube.
