Tyler The Creator – "Pigs" (2013)
Producer: Tyler The Creator
NWA - "Straight Outta Compton" (1988)
Producers: Dr. Dre, DJ Yella
Sample: The Winstons - Amen, Brother (1969)
The Winstons “Amen Brother” is a track that has been sampled in hip-hop on numerous occasions. These two tracks certainly show how the sample has been a mainstay over the course of hip-hop's evolution, with Tyler The Creator proving it's still an appropriate choice in the current game.
Both Tyler The Creator and NWA use the drum beat that kicks into the original sample choice around half through. Dre and DJ Yella slow it down a little, but keeps it very similar to its former sound. Tyler, on the other, hand takes the tempo down even more making what originally was an upbeat drum beat into a slow beat perfect for spitting over.
