    I have been looking for the sample in Over for 4 dang years. I know in my heart that this is a sample of some old song and not something that Al Khaaliq came up with from scratch. On another website, someone claimed parts of Over seem to be taken from Bruce Fisher's When Will I See You. Can anyone substantiate this? I listened and there are similarities but I don't think that is the main song sampled.

    Aaliyah's Quit Hatin was sampled for F***in Problems. Her "Ohh, ohh" vocals are distorted

    Drakes the kinda guy who would ask for protection. I think removing it is part of his tough guy act. Like "Yo i don't need no protection. YOLO!"

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 1 year ago:

    It's not protected. They removed the notice.

    I don't think this page is still protected cause some drake samples are being submitted

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 1 year ago:

    Submit them. The admins will still be able to access them and decide if they get on the site.

    @pedobear - You can upload them.

    "That's Hamilton from Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds, who he sampled."

    Oh no you didn't just say that! Which song?

  • stationary unit
    stationary unit said 2 years ago:

    I haven't heard of any re-openings of the case, so I'm pretty sure Drake's camp did pay up. And good for them, because they'd be stupid not to. Also, if you look at the songwriter credits for Drake's song, you'll see "Danny Robert Hamilton" credited. That's Hamilton from Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds, who he sampled. If the case is over, then I see no reason to keep that submission hidden.

    I'm also in support of putting back up that "Do It for the Boy" sample in the same Drake song. I mean, Drake has admitted it, the producer of the song ended up getting 25% of the royalties (he's also credited as a songwriter: "Nakia S. Coleman"), and I doubt that Lil Wayne is gonna sue Drake.

    Obviously, they are trying to hide it because it ain't here.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 2 years ago:

    Lol...trying to deny it? Have you heard Best I Ever Had? It's like a blatant rip of the original. It's not like they tried to hide it or anything. So no, I'm not understanding it.

  • stationary unit
    stationary unit said 2 years ago:

    Apparently, there was a settlement between Drake and Playboy, which of course ended with Drake's camp needing to pay up. Then, the suit was dismissed (though Playboy can still petition to reopen the case if Drake's camp didn't pay).

    I'm understanding it. If I stole something and I'm trying to deny it, I wouldn't want the evidence easily available on a website.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 2 years ago:

    I'm wondering why the sample for Best I Ever Had isn't here. They already got in trouble for sampling it so why try to hide it? Everyone knows what the sample is by now and it's even on Wikipedia.

    Why does Drake not want more content to be added. Is this for real? Him or some executives from the record company? What a bunch of dicks!

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 3 years ago:

    Once you can hear the sample it's not a big deal. Grooveshark links are a pain to moderate.

    Alright just note that they are usually either slowed pr sped up.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 3 years ago:

    Nah put the Youtube links. When they get taken down they'll get replaced. Grooveshark should always be a last resort.

  • Nick M.
    Nick M. said 3 years ago:

    Yes it was leaked, and by the way all the Youtube videos will get taken down, especially with the "Take Care Tracks", so it's best to put the Grooveshark links for now.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 3 years ago:

    I don't think so but wasn't it leaked? Wasn't it supposed to come out 15th?

  • Nick M.
    Nick M. said 3 years ago:

    Ok Jay, And technically, Take Care wasn't released yet, Right?

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 3 years ago:

    Oh wow. The Take Care samples are going up. Nick I think you can submit them (according to Spinks comment) and admin will decide if they can be approved. Don't mind the rejected message - once you submit them they're in the database with your credit.

    Theres also the thing with Kia Shine claiming that he made much of "Best I Ever Had"

  • stationary unit

    Wow, had no idea that Playboy owned the rights to (title censored). Reached #1 when it was released, no wonder Drake's getting sued for sampling it.

  • Buzz-Duh
    Buzz-Duh said 4 years ago:

    I figured something was up when they asked the site to remove his samples.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 4 years ago:

    Yeah I figured it was something like that. Sucks for real because it was really his demo.

  • Esa
    Esa said 4 years ago:

    Drake is being sued for "Best I Ever Had" (http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.11576/title.drake-sued-by-playboy) for copyright infringement. I could see why the page was requested to be protected. It sucks, though, the song started out as a mixtape track and possibly didn't really need to have the sample cleared, since the mixtape wasn't sold at the time it was released. Still, Drake's label could have tried to get the sampled cleared out before releasing the track for radio play.

    It was a c&d letter, not a request from Drake himself.

  • FoggyDayz

    I'm thinking this--either Drake doesn't want his secret sampling treasures copied by others, or he doesn't want his secret sampling treasures copied by others.

  • Jay Gumb$
    Jay Gumb$ said 4 years ago:

    This is some dumb s***. I'd like to know the reason why.

  • creisert
    creisert said 4 years ago:

    I want to find out the sample in "Over". Drake and Boi-1da claim that no samples were used. I can say that the music on the chorus part sounds A LOT like the violins were lifted from a cross between "Wildflower" by New Birth, "Cause I Love You" by Lenny Williams, and "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes. Does anyone agree with this? The melody throughout the verses sounds very familiar but I can't place it!

  • branflakez06

    This is stupid. I want to put the song Papoose sampled from Drake but, the site won't let me add the song.

    A question from a friend: anyone know where the piano samples at 4:12 & 4:21 are from in Forever? I don't think these are against the rules, as they sound like a classical track to me... not sure? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDuRoPIOBjE&feature=fvst

  • Xanadu
    Xanadu said 4 years ago:

    I can't even submit covers/samples of Drake's stuff. I got this message after posting one: "Thanks for your submission. However, it was declined since Drake is a protected artist in the system. This means that at the request of Drake, no further content can be added by the community for this artist.". What happens to my submission, by the way? Is it secretly queued for review or just not added?
