    I listen to a lot old "obscure" 70's and 80's funk/R&B,rock and Jazz groups...

    and it really is like shot of adrenaline when you unintentionally run across a sample from one the greats(Premo,Dilla,Pete Rock,RZA,Madlib,Diamond D.,Q-Tip, The ALC,9th Wonder,Buckwild)

    sometimes it immediately hits you.... but a lot times...you sitting there replaying that 2-3 seconds of music again racking your brain to recall what hip hop song you first heard it on.....lol

    Haha you called that spot on... When I first started listening to funk, I was listening to Zapp and Rodger one time and all of a sudden I was like 'Yo thats 2pac's Keep Your Head up!!!' like you say you get a buzz haha

    And my memory is really bad, so like you say quite often your racking your brains the whole day trying to figure out what hip hop song sampled a certain record hahaha

    When done properly (meaning NOT that Puffy ? where you basically just using the instrumental of the song)


    Sampling is the purest form of hip-hop....is it strictly represents innovation

    Dude was so ahead of his time. I'll do that sometimes, go on whosampled and find where they got it from. Makes me envious and inspired at the same damn time

    Beyond sample clearance concerns
    the irony is,at one time merely mentioning the original artist name was harshly frowned upon...

    with the internet and all...some producer (NOT ALL) not as tight lipped.

    which bring me to....

    Dilla.

    I hear tracks he sampled,and just shake my head and disbelief .

    So many questions...lol
    like what mind him think THAT 2 second riff was THE ONE,
    how he did do it.........and this back in the 90's....early 2000's

    Dilla,Premo,RZA,Pete Rock,Madlib.....these guys are certified geniuses at this ? .
    Their patience is infinite.

    Because back in the day, a lot songs were 9-10 minutes long

    But these guys,listened to ALL the music....and then a light bulb goes off....
    and right there hidden between mark 8:54-8:56 is a hip hop classic ready to crafted.
