Classic hip-hop sample! If not mistaken, originally from the song U.F.O. by ESG in 1981. Commonly used in hip-hop tracks in the golden era (mid-80's until mid 90's).

Edited with Audacity and Magix Music Maker 5.

As a a classic hip-hop sample, it's de facto public domain. It's been used so many times by so many artists through the years.

Here you have a list of some songs those have it (ordered by release date):

Some other classic samples has been already uploaded to freesound.org. You can check, for example, the amen break (extracted from The Amen Brothers by The Winstons in 1969): if you make a search of "amen break" you'll find about 250 sounds (at the moment I wrote this description), original one and variations.
