To Kanye's Soul Mix Show!
Musical genius (my opinion) Kanye West has to sample from somewhere. The man is not very subtle in his jacking however, and I found this to be pretty interesting. However unoriginal, you can't blame the man for making dope-ass music. I suggest you check this out, get a feel for how a big name in the business samples as well as just to listen to some good songs. Also, multiple people in the c-box over there had mentioned sampled songs. (We did a little of this as a collective blog team, but it died down some. Variety is good.) Kanye may not chop the song up very well, but he picks some damn good ones to use. This mix is done by A-Trak (Kanye's DJ); Recommended, check this one out definitely.
Also, in case anyone was wondering, I looked into how to set up a forum and how it works. Me and my minimum knowledge of HTML and .php scripts and all that ish was not able to figure it out completely. If anyone's interested in helping set that up, that would be great. It seems like we need it, just to organize requests, dead links/re-ups, recommendations, all that stuff. Enjoy the music everyone!
