Legendary singer, songwriter, and musician Willie Hutch created music decades ago that continues to influence musicians today.

Hutch has to be the most sampled artist by Three 6 Mafia producers D.J. Paul and Juicy J — think records like "Stay Fly," "Poppin' My Collar," and "I Choose You."

Similar to Marvin Gaye, Hutch possessed a distinctly soulful sound that reigned supreme on Motown Records during its heyday. He's also largely known for creating the soundtracks for Blaxploitation films The Mack and Foxy Brown.

One of my favorite songs by Hutch is titled "Kelly Green." The song appears on his Midnight Dancer album. Check it out below.
