"Breaker 1/9" is a song by Common, released in 1993 as the second single from his debut album "Can I Borrow a Dollar?". Produced by Immenslope, it samples both "Between the Sheets" by The Isley Brothers and "Black Jack" by Donald Byrd. Its beat also contains "booming" drums sampled from "Get Out of My Life, Woman" by Lee Dorsey and made for the "jeep beat collective."cite web | last = Jost | first = Matt | url = http://rapreviews.com/archive/BTTL_borrowadollar.html | title = Can I Borrow a Dollar?

It holds the worst chart position of any single from that album, yet still reached #10 on the Hot Rap Singles chart.
