So I wake up to an email yesterday about Rick Ross and Jay-Z rapping over a beat that sounds like "Four Hills". Now I know people sample the same records all the time and the particular one I used isn't rare at all, so I didn't think twice when I heard about it. Once I listened to it I realized they went back and re-played the sample and had a choir come in and change the original lyrics. Even more proof of it just being a coincidence using the same song. I didn't see what the big deal was until I heard them re-do the one thing that wasn't in the original song - the vocal/echo scratch melody that you hear in the clip compared below. Add a similar drum pattern and it's safe to say the dudes who made the beat probably heard my song. Either way, I'm not buggin. I just think it's a trip.
Let me know what you think
