Amazing use of a beautifully done song
Sucha graphic sample!!!
@jbcedeno95 Thats a bit of a cop out don't you think?? Look at the sheer amount of co-producers on his last 2 albums. And lets add that even people close to Kanye like John Legend have said that he doesn't actually make beats anymore. He just tinkers with pre-existing beats given to him by other producers. Im not knocking Ye for this, I mean, in between the Kardashian's constant drama, his fashion career, and his kid, do you really think he has time to sit down and make a traditional beat anymore??
@Izeytope96 Im pretty sure every single hip hop producer has people in their ears suggesting and helping them find obscure stuff to sample. You cant write Kanye off completely for his obscure stuff
@tre'beezy ?? Most of the artists kanye samples HAVE been sampled before so I really don't know what your trying to imply there. A lot of his sources(particularly in the CD/LR years) are common in 90's hip hop boom bap circles. @jbcedeno96How is Blame Game an obscure sample?? ITS APHEX TWIN FOR GODS SAKES!!!! And I can almost certainly guarantee that Bound 2, On Sight, and Power samples were NOT found by Kanye. Do you really believe that Kanye digs in the crates anymore??? Cmon guys, read the Co-production credits if you really wanna find out who made beats for Kanye's last couple of albums.
if theyre so easy to find how come no one else has sampled them? answer that?
@e8ghtmileshigh- Bound 2, Power, New Slaves, Blame Game, On Sight. Minus Nina Simone, Otis Redding and James Brown much of the music Kanye samples is obscure. You don't have to be in love with him, but you cant say all his samples are easy to find and common.
@e8ghtmileshigh That's true but some how he makes the samples that he uses sounds really interesting!!!
@MasterJ24 Kanye uses easy to find samples that he has to pay 5 and 6 figures for. I recognize every singe one, they aren't obscure, or even sampled in a creative way.
@ekKo_MattPrice To me Kanye is a Genius producer.. To me he finds samples that I have never heard of and makes them really new!!!
Kanye West can't produce for s***. Don't believe me? Check the production team on 'Yeezus'.
Amazing sample. Kanye is a beast
Truly incredible usage....
