He didn't sample 2pac he sampled Pee-Wee's dance. The 2pac record isn't open enough to sample but the record 2pac sampled for the drum loop is
@Bboom Bap:In that other “I Wonder” submission that apparently got removed now, you wrote, that the album booklet said, the track was sampling Ambitionz Az A Ridah, right?It seems like the content of the album booklet was put on the discogs release page of Graduation . There is no mentioning of 2Pac or Daz Dillinger (who Produced Ambitionz Az A Ridah).I can only say, that the 2Pac track does not have any spot, where anyone could extract a clean snare sample from. At least I could not find one…There always is either 2Pac’s voice, the Keys, or a Violin sound on top of the snare, rendering it not suitable for a clean snare sample, like you can hear it in Kanye’s song (@ roughly 3:20 in Kanye’s song you can create a clean drumloop).My guess is, that the snare either is a sample from some kind of sample CD/drum machine, or a “regular” snare which was processed by a Compressor. Even all those “recreated” instrumentals of Ambitionz Az A Ridah (just google “Ambitionz Az A Ridah instrumental”) on the internet by hobby producers have the almost identical snare sound like the 2Pac and Kanye West song.IMHO this is in no way a *direct* sample of 2Pac’s song. :-) http://www.discogs.com/kanYeWest-Graduation/release/1076860
@pano What do you think about this: http://www.whosampled.com/sample/view/95975/Could the loop for both songs have come from that?
hmm… I am not sure this really is a (direct) sample^^ The snare does sound similar, but there is no place in the 2Pac track where the drums could have been cleanly sampled from… I listened to the whole song and also took a look at it in Audacity and could not locate any place that may be suitable…
Me neither, And he isn't destroying the magic of the original 2PAC song he sampled in the process :)
I can't believe no one else noticed.
