Ohio Artist: The Ohio Players

Also from Dayton, Ohio – funk legends The Ohio Players. Other than being fly beyond belief, they inspired the Red Hot Chili Peppers to cover one of their songs for the Beavis and Butt-head feature movie and are frequently sampled by DJs (especially by west coast 90s gangsta rap producers) and mashup artists today.
