Breaking down and identifying the samples within Big Sean's "Dark Sky Paradise."
Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Seanset to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold out of the crates. We already covered Drake's George Strait-referencing lyrics on "Blessings" and Mr. West's flip of D.J. Rogers' "Say You Love Me, One More Time" on "IDFWU" in previous weeks, so now it's time to get into the deeper cuts.
Read on to get the scoop on the source material for some of Dark Sky Paradise's finest beats.
