During and appearance on Grind Music Radio with Sean C & LV, DJ Premier gives his take on the practice of sampling in hip-hop and lists his personal heroes of DJ’ing, and the role that they played in inspiring his signature melodic scratching.
Just what’s your whole take on the climate with sampling and sampling producers and non-sampling producers?
On a major label standpoint, if they’re gonna sign a hip-hop artist, then samples is part of the culture and how we make records. So have a budget for that. Otherwise, don’t sign the artist and leave hip-hop alone.
