Sampling: An Essence of Hip-Hop

So we all know that hip-hop lives on sampling. It’s like one big history book–you can trace back to a song in the 80s by listening to a current song by following all the samples. So check out this site if you don’t know about it yet, it’s pretty tight, you get to look up  by artist all songs that the artist has sampled, and all songs that has sampled that song. Pretty user friendly
