    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'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.
