No Gangstarr or David Axelrod samples were used. And to be perfectly honest I'm not a fan of sample snitching.

Thanks Fam! I forget sometimes the internet is the internet. I think saying I don't believe in revealing samples better suits my feelings.

CONGRATS dude!

Your misguided hate is not #RealHipHop.

Not at all...

I know about these cornball sites like "WhoSampled" and whatnot, but revealing samples is not a #RealHipHop thing to do. That's for lames and suckers or silly kids who don't know any better.

There was a reason why we covered the labels on our records back in the days in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, The Bronx and Long Island.

There's a reason why I chop, layer and flip samples instead of taking a straight up loop.

Until you've paid a 22k fee for a Gap Band sample like I had to do, because some sucker ass A&R Director insisted on it. Then you can talk to me all you want about sharing sample sources online.

I don't punch a clock, sit in a cubicle, hustle drugs, perform surgeries, sell cars or flip burgers, I make records and do shows for a living.

Why am I going to risk my only source of income by revealing what records I flipped?

You know what I hate?

No one is being a dick about anything, just telling the absolute truth.
I'm tired of watching my culture, getting destroyed by those who don't truly respect it or live it.
But this is what happens when a bunch of corporate vultures have been allowed to corrupt a culture.
Shit gets distorted and levels of comprehension lowered.

Not mad at all Jr.
You know, one of the original tenements of #RealHipHop culture is exercising your intellect through education.
You really should consider getting one before you go back to the essence.

Congrats mate

Here's my thought, if your using someone else's music and sampling it you should respect the artist and give them credit. Basically revealing a sample is not a bad thing, it's a good thing.

Are your people who don't reveal your samples, scared or something. Like seriously, you don't even own the music even if you clear it

Anyways, the beat is dope and its dope that qtip gave you notice

Can we kill this thread? Obviously,Pete has a philosophy grained into him. He is immersed in the culture and I don't think anyone on here is going to change his opinion. Not like it needs to be. On the same hand I grew up in the culture understand it but am not entrenched in orthodoxy. Of course I am not worried about people suing me either, so he has a valid point.

It's whatever man, to each his own. He's done good, congratulate him. Dead.


Ps. Pete, can you get Tip to A. Send me an autograph and B peep my Soundcloud??! Haha, I kid I kid.

Peace Tastik,

First of all thank you for your compliments. Although I can appreciate your position I disagree because all I'm sampling is a recorded sound. When I flip a sample I change the melodic and rhythmic structure of the original, especially when I change the very key of that sample and truncate it note by note and layer it with other samples from different records. I'm not taking a shortcut or the easy way out, I'm putting in just as much work as the guy in 1973 who played the bassline I flipped into something else that he did not think of. I'm writing something fresh and new, not blatantly looping something everyone and their Grandmother knows. I believe sampling is a fine art and treat it as such. I may currently live in Seattle, but I'm from Brooklyn, the true home of hip hop music and culture, so this is instilled within me.

Peace MC,

I don't mind discussing my indifference to revealing samples and the very things that trouble me about what my friends and I call the digital misappropriation of hip hop. How else will the younger generation learn if they are not challenged to think about why elder statesmen of hip hop such as myself object to the degradation of our culture?

What's mainstream hip hop and what's underground is absolutely backwards and should be reversed back to it's proper state, but it's not going to happen unless the younger generation know why old men like me will continue to fight for what is right until we die.

That's what my artistry is about, that's why I'm still making records and won't stop until my life ends. You don't necessarily have to like me or my music, but I was there in Brooklyn, I lived through it and still doing it, so I'm pretty sure I have an insight to offer and I welcome any of your questions as long as you don't get out of pocket, or Grandpa Pete will have to reach for his cane and wack your ass with truth and facts.

I respect someone who can flip samples, chop em, pitch em and whatever but sometimes it seems like people don't want to reveal there samples because they don't want others to use it.

I don't believe that to be the case... Not at all.

If someone figures out something I used and they make a record using the same sample I wouldn't care as long as they live by the #RealHipHop code of keeping it to themselves or at least don't reveal it online where it could tie me and any other record producer that samples up in court.

I'm not going to say who, but one of my longest friends in this business is about to lose his house and possibly the brownstone he bought for his Mother because some assholes posted every sample he used on a particular album he produced in the mid 90's on whosampled.

The crazy part is this man is considered a legend and he got screwed over by a suspect website. That's not right!

If I could I would buy that site out just to shut it down, because it has caused more trouble than done any good for the culture.

Cats who don't know any better got duped into believing whosampled is for educational purposes, but it wasn't. Its actually a database that was created so the major corporations who own publishing companies and labels can find uncleared samples and hold the artists and producers responsible and bring lawsuits against them. They just figured out a way to make all the idiots who share that info do all the hard work for them.

And these idiots going on YouTube trying to impress other cats making videos were they reveal the samples to classic hip hop album aren't #RealHipHop either. That's the most lamest L7 shit you can do. You're not persevering the culture..you're hindering it and destroying people's lives. You're just a toy and deserved to be shunned every time you show your face in public.

Well said

When I hear it from this perspective I understand we're you are coming from. I agree with what your saying but I also don't think real hip hop is a set of rules, however I believe it is about respect. Therefore people who keep samples to themselves are giving respect to the artist
