Diggin In The Crates; Kanye West Lesson

For those of us that dig in the crates, you're going to love this; a complete breakdown of the samples Kanye West used for his latest album "MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY". Without going into a full length post of albums and links, just peep the video below for a session in the mind of Kanye West.

I know a lot of people will be stunned by this, but as a DJ and a hardcore Hip-Hop head - I love it! Whoever said that the art of sampling is played out is insane. Hip-Hop was built on snatching breaks from albums and running them back to back on two turntables.

DARK FANTASY samples Mike Oldfield - In High Places
GORGEOUS interpolates Gene Clark and Roger McGuinn - You Showed Me
POWER samples Cold Grits - It’s Your Thing, Continent n° 6 – Afromerica, King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man
DEVIL IN A NEW DRESS samples Smokey Robinson - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
RUNAWAY samples Backyard Heavies - Expo 83 & Rick James Live at Long Beach, CA
HELL OF A LIFE samples Mojo Men - She's My Baby, Black Sabbath - Iron Man, Tony Joe White - Stud-Spider
BLAME GAME samples Aphex Twin - Avril 14th
LOST IN THE WORLD samples M. DiBange - Soul Makossa, Lyn Collins - Think (About It), Bon Iver - The Woods, Gil-Scott Heron - Comment #1
