    Samples Of The Week: June 5

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    G-Unit returned in full form yesterday, following a reunion on stage at Summer Jam, with a new freestyle over Hit-Boy & HS87's "Grindin' My Whole Life." The track was originally a posse cut from HS87, so there was plenty of space for 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck (and Kidd Kidd) to rap over it.

    On Animal Ambition, 50 Cent returns to the old street-ready sound that made him a household name back in 2003. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in hip-hop since 50’s debut. With the rise of Kanye West (or more particularly 808s & Heartbreak), the genre has become more emotive—more artistically diverse and interesting. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Kid CuDi and even Future to an extent have thrived off mixing street-singles with genuine tales of personal and romantic hardship.

    Apparently 50 likes his milk spoiled. Just a few months after referring to his G-Unit associates as "having an expiration date," the general has officially reunited live onstage with Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck. Tonight's Summer Jam performance marks the first time the entire group has performed together since 2008 when 50 leaked audio of Buck crying to him for advice to the internet, prompting a split between the Straight Outta Ca$hville rapper and the G-Unit head honcho. This is also 50 Cent's first time headlining a Summer Jam show in over a decade.

    50 Cent has been trolling long before the days of the internet.

    50 Cent is known to express his opinion with an extreme lack of filter, recently calling Diddyès new single, "Big Homie", "trash", and comparing former collaborators Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks to expired milk.
