    This week, Wiz Khalifa showed us all a new side of himself ("Trap Wiz") with his mixtape 28 Grams. Taking cues from Southern hip-hop, especially that of Atlanta, he gathered together a roster of trap producers like Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Sonny Digital and members of 808 Mafia to flesh out his new persona. Though the music on 28 Grams bears little in common with Rihanna's, Wiz has now said that the singer was another major influence on his tape.

    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".
