Samples Of The Week: September 18

A breakdown of the week's hottest tracks by their samples.

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, we had to give some extra shine to Big Sean in light of the four tracks he dropped on us last week, so he's on here twice, and Big K.R.I.T. takes the final spot.
