    A-Trak on recording this song with Kanye: "For “Gold Digger,” he had this rough version, but it felt too pop to him. He wanted to give it some hip-hop cred. I had an idea for a scratch, for the part where he raps “Get down girl, go ‘head, get down.” I knew which sample to use. He said, “I think it could be cool. We’re going to LA this week to finish things up.” "

    So it turns out the Sample Clearance issue with this song is A-Trak's fault. Whoops!

    Would it be fitting to add a "Sample Clearence Issue" tag on this sample now?

    They probably saw Kanye on TV and smelled the money
