    When I first started to get seriously into music, I bought 2 Technics turntables and bought a bunch of non commercial records I like to listen to (Talib Kweli, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, etc). Then I met some other DJ's who were crate diggers and introduced me into diggin for beats at local record stores. I never had too much cash to spend. What I am doing now is "e-diggin" goin thru www.the-breaks.com, AKA The (Rap) Sample FAQ looking up the artists I like, finding out what samples they using and stuff, then download them. They tend to use lots of 60-70's Funk, Classic R&B, Classic Jazz, and sometimes Movie Soundtracks. After listening to the original, I figure out what inspired them after listening to the original break to make the beat. Thats how I do it.

    Yeah, I understand this form of sampling, but what if the sample part you want has a beat to it or something u don't like in it... What you do about that?

    to me, sampling whole records on some heatmakers type shit is wack to me...

    i might do it 4 fun but nothin serious...if i do...itz nothin but soul music.

    if im sampling a melody chop...mayb some of that funky shit...and i can get drum cuts from anywhere...

    but im more trying to devolop myself as an actual artist and a realproducer...so that means not so much sampling for me,

    im workin on my own melodies more now with my midi keyboard...and im getting good at adding fx to my drumz and other thingz to make my overall beat actually sound better and more pro.

    sampling is dead and to me i know it wont get me anywhere...so i dont waste much time on it

    depends what kind of sampling.
    if its one of those the Kanye West does, that wont get anybody anywhere
    if its one of those, whether you dont know if sampling untill producers tells you its sampling, then its fine.

    i combine composing and sampling on one track.

    you guys need to check out stoupe the enemy of mankind's work, the jedi mind tricks producer. hell flip a sample so that the original artist cant even tell its his work, its truly art.


    and btw, for all of you faggots (yes i said it) hating on sampling, look at it like this.

    the 1st popular hip hop song (rappers delight) used a few samples
    your favorite rapper's favorite rapper uses samples
    half the songs you like are probably sampled and you dont even know it

    yeah im a digger....i got a pretty nice collection of everything....1800s (Classical) - 1990s...bout 800+ albums..it can be frustrating when you go through them and not find anything...and it is quite costly. but its well worth it.

    I dig but i do more original stuff I just like the challenge in making it sound hot, Some people only rap on sampled beats and im not even talking about industry people. I get alot of heads like you take this off of that movie and make a beat. If people wanna do a mix tape thats fine make sure you include that (For promotional use only)

    I think its best to know how to do both original and sampled beat, but have a tighter grasp on the original ones.
