It’s no secret that like 95% of the instrumentals we hear in hip-hop songs are samples from other songs. Sometimes the reason the song is sampled is because it’s really popular and it gives the song a familiar sound. But The best producers can find snippets of many songs and string them together to create something completely new. The ability to hear a piece of music and then imagine it with a different sound, mix, context and actually build it is an art form in itself.
If you, like the rest of the world, listened to ‘Watch The Throne’ yesterday than you’re probably interested to know what songs are sampled on the album. If you don’t already know than download this mixtape and listen to the songs in their original form. Download the mixtape here.
