And one of three tracks we look at is "21st Century Schizoid Man". Of course the teacher loves it. What a piece. of. shit. (I knew my teacher was on his game tonight when he called guitar pedals "foot buttons".)

I like hip-hop for its entertainment value but the best thing I've gotten out of it since I started listening is the sampling. I've been exposed to a shit-ton of old-school stuff and now I can call Ye a definite maestro for his ability to turn Crimson's brain dump into "Power".

It's 'History of Rock and Roll'. Funny fact: we don't cover Jimi Hendrix for one second but we spent two and a half hours on Frank Zappa and King Crimson. (Velvet Underground too but I naturally fancy them so I don't mind much)

And I love Kanye's sampling. His production is my favorite thing about him; he can pull the best stuff from an overall average to crap record and use it to his advantage.

Got it. What % of his own record does he produce then? I'm sure it varies but do we have an idea for MBDTF?
I ain't him or Kanye so I can't give you exact numbers. I think his son said awhile ago on KL that he came up with the sample and the drums/drum pattern.

The best part of the original song is when it goes "21st Century Schizoid Man" LOLOLOL

BTW idk if anyone knows but I was wondering. how does sampling work?? Do they have to credit the sample? Or pay to use the sample??

I like how the original changes timing. The instrumental part is pretty epic but I hate the singing parts

I gotta admit though. I didn't like it at first, then I listened couple months later and I was like "WOW"

Yes they give both credit and pay to use it. If you look in the album booklets they name the samples.
