Samples Of The Week: February 6
Samples Of The Week: February 6 Feb 6, 2014 at 11:05am
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 Curren$y, Mobb Deep, Freddie Gibbs and Isaiah Rashad chose to sample in their recent releases, all of which you can find on HNHH.

For rappers, having a dope ride is more than just a mode of transportation. Yes, it does mean no more riding the bus. But purchasing a brand new whip is symbolic of their rise to the top. Bugattis, Chevrolet Impalas, Aston Martins, and more luxury vehicles come with a hefty pricetag. If you can afford it, you’re probably living the life. Plus if you've got a nice whip, the ladies will usually follow. For those struggling rappers who came from a harsh upbringing and poverty, being able to choose between, let's say, a Beamer and Bentley is a sure sign they've made it.
