Music Sampling & Rap Music – How has rap changed?

Above is the video I created to explore the changes brought onto rap by sampling issues, and the evolution of sampling in the rap genre. I underwent extensive research to find the samples in some of the most influential artists’ songs; from raps early beginnings in the 80’s, all the way to the present day.

My video aims to reveal how the produsage practices in hip-hop over the years made a whole new genre phenomenon – pop rap, and how the choice made when repurposing samples changes the whole scope of rap itself. I hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Had to re-upload because of some copyright issues. Now fixed, and re-uploaded.
