    Samples Of The Week: November 13
    Nov 13, 2014 at 02:05 PM
    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, see who Eminem, PRhyme and Azealia Banks sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

It feels like just yesterday we were riding around with our windows down bumping "Hot Nigga" remixes and enjoying our Summer. As the leaves start to turn different colors and our t-shirts start getting covered by our hoodies, we need something to warm us up. Nah, miss us with that pumpkin spice latte bullshit, how about some fire freestyles?
