@Daniel Neves Great samples... I really love how Kanye produced this song!!
Kanye himself told he had sampled P.Y.T. on this song but actually I've neved noticed it before '-'
one of my favorites of all time
How did I NEVER notice this?! :O
The Good Life sample doens't go to PYT Sample, its from"Volume of the good life" a international mtv recording by D. Staggs III aka DMystro. Which has been proven in a Court of Law.
Cool, yeah, it's likely that this is direct so I've changed it and also the part sampled to vocals, as it sounds like it's just high-pitched vocals (plus Kanye interpolated it as a synth riff but the actual sample is of the vocals).
I submitted it as a direct sample but the moderator changed it to interpolated
Is this direct or interpolated? It sounds direct to me.
the best song ( Kanye West feat. T-Pain ) ( Good Life ) with sample ( Michael Jackson ) the song ( P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) the best version

I'm happy that this sample i submitted gets mentioned on MTV's news page and the fact that they directly refer to WhoSampled makes my contribution feel even bigger.http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1614853/20090626/jackson_michael.jhtml R.I.P. MJ
