No im not iv been saying it for a while, people are stuck in there ways and insist on giving people a pass for having no originality though. Nearly every song on his last album rips off something or another
That's a very narrow minded view from someone who's clearly never spent time trying to sample or make a song period. The very roots of hip hop are in sampling songs and making them into beats or new songs, or hooks. I get you're obsessed with discrediting Kanye, but in the midst of that you're also discrediting thousands of other DJs, Producers and Artists who have had classic albums created from sampling.
Are you saying A Tribe Called Quest's "Electric Relaxation" is a ripoff?
Method Man's "M.E.T.H.O.D. Man", is that a ripoff too?
Are you telling me there's no originality behind Slick Rick's "A Children's Story"?
Your opinion regarding this is invalid.
