    Samples Of The Week: October 30

    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 Drake, T.I. and Que & Problem sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

The track is speculated to appear on Drake's upcoming Views From The 6, although it seems just as likely to be a leftover from Nothing Was The Same.
