All hands on deck! The outlook for the future of sampling has greatly improved since Wu-Tang recently obtained clearance for the first Beatles song ever legally sampled! According to XXL and the Wu-Tang Myspace blog, the sample of The Beatles “My Guitar Gently Weeps” from the self titled White Album will appear as a remade version on Wu-Tang’s 8 Diagrams album available in stores on December 4th.
Now for the most important question… does this mean that Michael Jackson will be the person actually receiving the royalty checks?
