The Samples of Kanye
Interesting video of popular Kanye West produced songs that he has sampled from. Now, sampling is a part of hip-hop, and I’ve always known that he has sampled songs from the past, but this montage of his samples show how necessary it is to have money & good lawyers to be able to get the clearances – because some of his samples come from artists such as Elton John, Luther Vandross, Bette Midler, and many others.
As with all industries, nobody really ‘invents’, they just innovate on existing products, platforms, or in this case – music. And in all, nothing is really wrong with that, just as long the source is credited.
