Since we have already started a topic that is based on the thought and use of samples in music I most certainly had to post this for all those that told me they really felt & enjoyed that piece. I hope it picks up where the other left off and keeps y’all entertained & educated regarding this regularly practiced yet extremely complex field.
In a recent interview with US Rap News while on tour in France, the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. spoke on several topics, but the one I found to be most interesting was the idea and practice of using samples in hip hop. In the interview K.R.I.T. talks about the convention of sampling both ideas & music & how its done on such a frequent basis and also discusses his opinion of whether or not sampling will remain prevalent in hip hop. Just listening to him talk about it, one can easily tell that an easy answer to the subject is hard to come by. One can also tell it is something that can be lucrative or expensive depending on how it’s done as well as far-reaching when it comes to the different genres of music employed, musicians & artists sampled, and generations from which they originated. Some of the answers he gives may surprise you, but there are still a number of things that can be learned about the theory of sampling from this sit down. And perhaps after viewing the video, you will be a bit more astute in delivering an argument either for or against it.
So enjoy the video, thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other posts about sampling here at theintellution.com.
