2 funny, real shit tho. If ya sample gotta pay. Or get real creative so no one will know
Kanye WEst is the most overrated producer in the game. While people will read that statement and get mad, I want you to do a test. Take you top 10 Kanye West beats:
1. Look how many different production contributions are on each one of those beats
and more importantly.
2. Go compare Kanye’s version to the original sample, not much is changed or added, it sounds just like what he sampled.
Does Kanye have a good ear for taking non hiphop music and choosing to use that as a beat, I would say yes. But a lot of these guy OVER sample and get a lot of credit for the creation of beats because the general public is simply not familiar with the origin… “Who Gon Stop Me” from WTT being one of the most recent and blatant examples. If you are going to argue with me on this point, please remember to list your favorite Kanye beats below, so we can all check the samples and production credits.
This nigga is so ugly with that “oooOoooOOOOOOO” shit in the beginning lmao.
@onblast I will take that challenge when I get time, I’m guessing you singled Kanye out cause he is the only producer on the list so I think that is a very criticism
Niggas is “touring off a mixtape” so they do gotta break bread
Really… calling an older man the “N” word… what class!! To degrade a person who all his life has been in the music game… knows how to write, arrange, sing, and produce music. If you look at the history behind this man you will see his legacy and love of music …But Robert Poindexter is the bad guy for wanting his rightful “dues” from Kayne and others using his music. But back to the subject at hand… Sheriff BOB- go in with your “WORDS” blazing against these criminals… The courthouse will be your sunset…
He deserves his money.
