    Say what you want, but the ORIGINAL ruined it for me ! I remember in like '93 a techno version came out, and I thought it was awesome. The original is drab and dull. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMPSvfsIVe4&feature=related

    By the way, I think Bushido's version is great even though I don't understand a word.

    I have an easy solution for that. Like Dead Prez says "Turn off the radio! Turn off that bulls***!" I've never heard this song so no raping for me. I'm big fan of Jay-Z's earlier work though.

    It's not so much that they are "raping" the original song, but "raping" the source material used within the song. But still, the worst part is that every time you hear the original song, you are almost always reminded of the bad remake/sampling of the song.

    It depends on the artist. Unless the artist got completely screwed on their deal, it's usually 50/50 between the songwriters and the publishing company. Some major artists like Sting get 100% of the publishing.

    But is it necessarily the artist that agrees to it or the label/company ??

    I have a feeling that Alphaville don't feel so raped when they take their checks to the bank. I don't understand this rationale by some that classics are "raped" or "ruined" when they are sampled. If the original artists or songwriters agree to it, who's fault is it really?

    Thanks for raping a classic, Kanye.

    I've heard this song three times today alone.

    I can't imagine the undeserved financial rewards reaped from such imbalance between invention and
    originality that this travesty represents. lawl.
