    Nowadays, creating new and original music is very much easier said than done. That being said, a huge part of creating dope hip hip music involves sampling. This is exactly how it sounds: taking a portion, or sample (there it is), of a previous song and reusing it in a difference piece, in an effort to create something (almost) entirely unique.

While the latter hasn't been announced when this post was published, rappers did find other things to be outraged about.

Live From The Underground did 41,000. That's definitely a respectable starting place for a rapper who refused...
