The Art of Modern Day Sampling
The foundation of Hip-hop was built on samples, whether it was drum, vocal, or harmonic samples. As time has gone on and the sound of rap music has changed, one thing that hasn't changed is the art of sampling. More interesting is how some samples (and modern day songs) are so versatile that they get reused multiple times. Others are so unique that they are instantly recognizable.
It's interesting how many samples are taken from artists who are still relevant. Some are classic hip-hop/R&B songs with more modern drum patterns. Here are some of the best examples of Modern Day Sampling in Hip-hop gone well.
