Kanye: he’s kind of a dick, but he sure does have a knack for choosing samples and utilizing them in interesting ways.

For those who don’t know, the gentleman in the header image and pictured above is the late, great Clyde Stubblefield: the man behind the “Funky Drummer” drum beat, which is quite possibly the most sampled recording in music history.

As always, any and all music-related topics are welcome. Have fun, and rock out with yr guac out!
