    Why was the "black" vocal sample from Black Skinhead taken down??? It was correct.

    You could either be a brilliant lyricist or a brilliant producer. Kanye used to be a brilliant lyricist but then he got caught up in his own fame and riches and kind of forgot about that. We see glimpses of it in his later work, but not as good as he used to.

    For my money though, he has always been an amazing producer and still is. @Shinji - no mater how many samples he uses to make up a melody or a track, he is still an artist in its purest form.

    As @James Perez says, sampling is an integral part of the hip-hop culture. And Kayne is really pushing the boundaries of it on Yeezus. The fast cuts, the empty spaces, the juxtaposition - it's all incredible art.

    Kanye West is a f***ing 2-bit egotistical childish douchebag who thinks he's the incarnation of Jesus or some s*** who's in bitter need of a reality check. He thinks the entire world is suppose to kiss the toilet he shits in. NO. He better be f***ing happy with what he has because frankly all he does is take things for granted and when he realizes its never enough, he whines like a teenage b**** on her period. And how dare this f***er compares himself to Kurt Cobain? He will never be like him. The closest he can get to being like him is blowing his brains out with a shotgun. And then he says he's the voice of this generation. I'd rather cut my ears off than have someone like him "enlighten" me. And what type of d****** names their kid after a direction? If you ask me, Kanye West is like a darker version of Justin Bieber, just more stupid in his own way, more childish for stealing the mike from Taylor Swift, and a lot more arrogant. Don't get me wrong, I agree with you @Arnaud about sampling music, but COME ON! HE SAMPLED OVER 1000 SONGS! Would it kill him to get his own idea and turn into a track, instead of sampling it and adding to this extensive list?

    @James Perez. I fully agree with you. What are these people on about - no originality? Kanye is one of the most creative hip-hop producers around and Yeezus just proves it - some of his best work yet. The way he structures his tracks is amazing - don't think any of this is sheer fluke - he's extremely talented. Some of the sample compositions he puts together are very complex and he pulls them off so easily.

    As for originality - what does being really original mean? Everything we say and do is influenced by something else. Sampling something is a way to pay respect to that track and evolve it into something newer.

    Kanye's tracks are put together to challenge you and evoke a reaction - which is exactly what he's getting.

    Plenty. For one, the raps are original. Two, I'm willing to bet you haven't heard the stuff he's done recently, seeing how it isn't even close to "pappy."

    @Billie Jewell: I think your on the wrong site. All of us here love the art of sampling and Kanye West Is widely known as one of the greatest in this art form. If you can't at least have some appreciation for sampling then I think you need to ask an admin to deactivate your account on this site and stop coming to stop coming to Whosampled.com. If you don't like sampling I don't see why your even on this site in the first place except to troll and promote Peven Everrett's music.

    I thought Kanye was the best musician why can't he make his own music then? HAHAHA such low standards people have these days. Will bring a new smile to my face the next time some ignorant Kanye fan tells me how great he is. 304 songs sampled. People need to drop these zeroes. We have nothing to look back on as our own in this generation as long as people think people like Kanye know anything about music. On top of that it takes so much personnel to actually make his albums. Thank god for cats like Peven Everett that perform all of his own tracks that he writes and self produces. ALONE!

    I heard a song on the radio that sounded a little like Love Lockdown, but I failed to recognize it.... it sounded like an old song... it had a woman of a group of women singing on it, not much of a clue.
