The song was produced by Dr. Dre and executive produced by Eazy-E (both members of N.W.A at the time of its release), and samples "Misdemeanor" by Foster Sylvers. The song has appeared on many video games such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, True Crime: Streets of LA and Madden 2005. Its line "Y'all ready for this?" is also heard in the title screen of the platform game Jazz Jackrabbit 2.
Samples & Covers
Most notably, "Y'all ready for this?" has been made globally famous as a sample in the song "Get Ready for This" by early-'90s dance group 2 Unlimited. That song is arguably the most played opening song for arena-based sporting events. The opening of "Get Ready for This" is also used in a 2004 South Park episode in which candidates for school mascot are introduced in the school's gymnasium. The quote "stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless" was sampled by Eazy-E for the chorus of his diss song against Dr. Dre, "Real Muthafuckin' G's" in 1993. "It's Funky Enough" was sampled again by Eazy-E in his song "Creep N Crawl", which appears on his 1995 posthumous album Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton.
A cover version of "It's Funky Enough" was recorded by the hip-hop fusion group Detox Junky in September 2012 and the group hopes to include the track on their full length album Acts of Terror, and release it as a single.
