What's your opinion on people taking samples used by cats like Pete Rock, Primo, Madlib etc and making new beats out of the same exact loop used....I've been seeing people doing this lately....like, the only difference is drums and percussion...why do people do that?....maybe they didn't know it was already used, but it's hard to believe that when half ya tracks come from other peoples sample choices.

It's whack. It's like sloppy seconds. Find your own shit or flip it in an original way. I always try to find if certain samples I'm planning on using have been used before and if so in what capacity. If I can't bring anything new to it (besides drums) then I dont fuck with it. I'm not a cover artist...
