This dudes taking a whole swag of real artists music,running it through a sampler and calling it "new music" and thinking hes the sh*t.Without real artists and musicians - ppl like Kanye & Just Blaze - would be selling burgers,yea they flip samples - but its not original.NaS was right - hip hop needs musicians that can play instruments and not just tap some pre loaded buttons and think theyre reinventing the wheel.
The fact that their musical instrument of choice is a sampler and not a guitar does not mean they're not real artists and musicians. You can criticize the quality of some sampling work compared to other work, of course, and the same is true with any musical instrument, some people know how to use it to it's fullest extent, and some people are lacking. Sampling as an art, however, should not be disrespected, and is at the foundations of Hip-Hop music (and should continue to be one of the core techniques used in it). Every musician uses the work of other musicians, no one is creating music in a vacuum, the fact that in sampling it's with actual recorded sound doesn't make it not valid, it's just a utilization of modern technology, a newer instrument in making music.
