Every Kanye West sample

Came across this tasty little thing...a clip of every song (apparently) that Kanye's sampled, along with the track he used it in. It's an interesting watch, as well as an impressive piece of music nerdery. Pretty sure you'll find some tracks in there you'll like that you didn't know before, just like I did.


Check out the blog it came from.

I would love to know how much random music he trawls through on the hunt for the next big sample. I really love the Bon Iver - Into The Woods moment on My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy.

I heard that some of the bigger producers employ people to sample-hunt. Dr Dre was that one I was told about but I wouldn't be surprised if Kanye does it too, if such a thing does indeed exist (what a job to have!), especially seeing as he produces for people as well as his own work.
