Samples Of the Week: August 28
Samples Of the Week: August 28 Aug 28, 2014 at 03:03pm
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".  This week, we cover a wacky batch of samples from Action Bronson, Yelawolf and Travi$ Scott. This is the weirdest edition of Samples Of The Week yet.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who don't believe every hip-hop video has to be about models sitting on the hood of a rented car. The idiots who believe you cannot fill a three and a half minute run time with close-ups of your friends mean-mugging and call it a day.

When sampling, producers usually try to find obscure and/or rare source material to draw from, both because they don't want listeners to associate their final product with a song they already know, and because they'd likely to avoid copyright issues. But sometimes, out-of-the-box ideas will come to fruition, and lead producers to sample from well-known, but unexpected places.

Lets be real, most of us can't even afford to buy CDs at retail value. At least that's what we tell ourselves as we pirate just about every record we can get our hands on. That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances. "Bullshit! 50 is streaming his SXSW performance for free on March 11th," you might say. Well, first off, stop being a smart ass. Second, while it's true you might be able to "see" Mr.

Only a handful of artists release as much content as Curren$y does. Some can match the quantity, but none can top the quality. Spitta Andretti is known for releasing album-quality mixtapes at a constant rate, giving fans all they can digest. 2013’s New Jet City was one of the hottest mixtapes of the year, and his latest offering The Drive In Theatre doesn’t disappoint either.

Apparently, because he is not an athlete, Nike could not pay him any royalties; which didn't fly with 'Ye.

"It's much better than the shit we did last time. I won't call it shit. That was a figure of speech, but it's much better music. It's the best music we've ever made by far."
