    Samples Of The Week: March 13

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."  This week, see who Kid Ink, Jay Z, A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar chose to sample in their recent releases, all of which you can find on HNHH.

    ASAP Rocky Comments On Security Scuffle AT VMAs
    Aug 29, 2013 at 03:51pm
    Last week, some footage surfaced of ASAP Rocky getting up in the grill of a security guard at the VMAs. The exchange looked pretty heated, but the context of what was going on wasn't entirely clear. TMZ approached Rocky, asking him about the scuffle in question, but he remained pretty tight-lipped about the situation-- which may had something to do with his state at the time.
