Timbaland gets sampled (Part 1)

First off excuse me for not getting that Timbo/Snoop track up to listen to, I was having some trouble with the site but it's up now so go take a listen.

So it's been determined that Tim samples and samples well but what about Tim's productions? Have they ever been sampled? The answer is yes though not too many of his tracks have been sampled. Let's just start with those tracks that have only had their lyrics sampled. For example:

Cassidy's "I'm A Hustla" samples the lyrics from Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulders"

Juvenile's "The Way I Be Leaning" also samples the lyrics Jay-Z "Dirt Off Your Shoulder"

E-40's "Ya Blind" samples the lyrics (and the vocal riff ha!) from Missy Elliott's "Why You All In My Grill"

Finally, Skillz "Crew Deep" samples Missy's "Get UR Freak On" if only for a second, Tim still gets credit.

Now what about others? I know of a few more hence the Part I, but what about ya'll? Know any Timbo tracks that have been sampled? Holla!
