Song vs. Sample

The art of sampling is one of the cornerstones of hip hop. At the heart of every great hip hop track is usually a great sample. One of the things I love about hip hop is being able to track down the sample of a song you love, only to find out that the sample is just as good as the track that sampled it. Here are just 2 examples:

Example 1

Sample: Willie Hutch - I Choose You

Song: UGK - Int'l Players Anthem (feat. OutKast) (prod. DJ Paul & Juicy J)

Example 2

Sample: Billy Stewart - Cross My Heart

Song: Jay Electronica - Exhibit C (prod. Just Blaze)
