Any clues to what rhythm instrument(s) are used in this intro?

Hi Guys. I'm just starting out with hip hop and analyzing tracks to learn. Any clues to what rhythm instrument(s) are used in this intro? To me it sounds like harp mixed with some organ but it's a very distinctive sound. I've tried a few plucked instruments including kontakt's factory harp but I seem to me missing the very pronounced "frangggg" plucking sound right at the attack.

Currently I'm playing it as chords C Ab G# but it sound like it might just be the root notes with the harmonics, partials and overtones of the "instrument" that produces a chord like tone?
