King Combs plans to create a hip-hop legacy with his own music, but he admits it’s difficult to resist sampling popular hits. TMZ asked Bad Boy Jr. at LAX about using his father’s music samples in the studio.
While “How You Want It?” with Teyana Taylor used Mase and Total’s “What You Want” melody and went Gold.
Nevertheless, the debate continues as many feel today’s samples aren’t innovative and are, in fact, lazy. KC’s dad, Diddy, claims to have “invented” the remix, so guess that makes it a family thing!
Do you think sampling in hip-hop is being overdone? Is sampling lazy?
