10 Hip-Hop Songs And Their Original Samples


Artists love samples. These are some my favorites. Hip-Hop's relationship with old-school samples is legendary. From its very conception, Hip-Hop borrows loop sections of Funk, Jazz and Soul tracks and transforms them into most famous songs of all time of the genre. Sometimes it's done so well that you don't even realize it's a sample, so sit back and join us as we study some of the best Hip-Hop samples ever. For the best experience, first, listen to the hip-hop version and then check out its sample.
