    i just downloaded this from Amazon for a dollar. this is why i love Hip-Hop. they make normal folks go out an buy or become interested in other artists/genres just by sampling the good parts of a song. thank god 4 Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop instrumentally generated more money & sales for so many artists that wouldn’t have gotten those sales.

    @wonderlustre agreed. How many people have heard of and developed a love for some of these musicians STRICTLY BECAUSE they were sampled?

    ALRIGHT PEOPLE LISTEN UP

    I’m not saying I approve of other artists taking a beat or a groove out of a classic, I ain’t callin em assholes or fakes. But just as you’re here for a damn good song, so were those artists which copied the original beat. So what if they don’t have ALL the originality which set todays music, at the very least recognize the fact that some of todays artists can appreciate the classics.

    Wow, suprised that no one mentioned how curiously identical this sounds to “Doin Time” by Sublime. Both songs start out almost the exact same way, just add some echo and chamber effects, a sample, some filtering and live instrumentation and there ya go.

    Ah the 1960s…what a vast reservoir of incredible vibes one can tap into.
    I grew up in the 60s but there is so much music I somehow missed which is saying A LOT.Thanks to You Tube I’m finally discovering all of the amazing stuff I missed first time around.Who says ya can’t go home again?

    @wwfrules11 don’t think of it as stealing, think of it as keeping it alive for the younger generation, i’m a die hard lil wayne fan, and if it weren’t for his “rendition” i would have never heard this track…whether you give credit or not, this hit was reinvinted with another hit over 40 years later
