when you think of kanye what music comes to mind?
i think of king crimson - schizoid man
I just cant believe this nigga went from "We'll buy alot of clothes but we don't really need em things we buy to cover up whats inside. Cause they make us hate ourself and love they wealth that's why shorties holla ''where the ballas at?''
to begging the white man to let him make leather draws and socks.
There is a pitchfork interview whee they asked about it. Here's the related portion:
On Kanye sampling Drukqs’ “Avril 14th” on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’s “Blame Game”: “Is it a sample? I actually don't know what it ended up being in the end, I'm so slack. I know that he tried to fucking rip me off and claim that he'd written it, and they tried to get away with not paying. I was really helpful, and when they first sent it to me, I was like, ‘Oh, I can re-do that for you, if you like,’ because they'd sampled it really badly and time-stretched it and there was loads of artifacts. I was like, ‘I'll just replay it for you at that speed if you want.’ And they totally didn't even say ‘hello’ or ‘thanks,’ they just replied with, ‘It's not yours, it's ours, and we're not even asking you any more.’” [laughs]
