It's also funny how people have Uber raer crates but nobody knew Ice Cream and Shook Ones , and they end up being from an Earl Klugh and Herbie Hancock records..

p.s. ameldabee i didn't know you posted on here, I'be listening to those sample mixes on youtube for like the last two weeks. They're done very well. Especially like the Mobb Deep and Beatnuts. I Look forward to hearing some new ones.
None of the recreations get the pitch right, but it sure sounds like the correct sample!
I slowed it down by 9 semitones, played it on top of the instrumental and it sounded close enough to me. Besides, I don't think Havoc would have been too concerned with pitch-perfect tuning at that point.
It is the right sample source. But Havoc only used one sample out of that piano, not two. As far as I understood it right, the guys at the-breaks.com said he used the beginning sounds and one part which begins 4 seconds after the start.
I think he only used the part which starts after 4 seconds. If you listen closely to Shook Ones Pts.2, you will hear a crackle/static noise, always starting on the 1 of every bar. This noise sounds pitched too. He had a crackle/static on the 1 of the sample which was pitched too as he pichted the sample.
The first bar of Shock Ones Pt.2 is pitched minus 14 semitones and the second is the same sample pitched minus 9 semitone.
I did a tutorial on that sample which you can listen to here.
I tweeked the EQ on that piano too so that you can hear that it is the original sample source.
