Another edition of Sampled Saturday and today I’m hitting you with five hip-hop songs with various samples which I will list with each song you are familiar how they have given the song a different direction.
First I will give you the song from one of the most popular white rappers out there, Mac Miller. He has released several tracks since Best Day Ever, some of them have been weak but his sample of The Temper Trap‘s “Love Lost” is pretty cool. They didn’t really change up the original much except with Mac jumping on the vocals instead.

What I like about Kid QC is that he uses samples a lot but doesn’t take away what we like from the original while adding something fresh with his rapping. Here QC samples my favorite disco music from the Bee Gees.

Next comes a chill hip-hop songs that samples my favorite crooner, Michael Buble. Boro is an emerging talent, I’m not sure I’m a fan yet but all I know is I got big respect for him for sampling Buble.

I have heard this Three Dog Night song sampled many times, yet always slightly different in how its used. Here Pmac uses “One” to create a chill hip-hop track with a sick hook using the original.
Pmac – One
Last song is more of an Pop freestyle over one of the best Third Eye Blind songs ever! Although Bei Maejor uses “Semi-Charmed Life” to showcase his vocals, I love the instrumentals so much. I mean, come on, it’s Third Eye Blind, if you don’t like Third Eye Blind, you need to check your ears.
Bei Maejor – Something Else
Hope everybody is having a great 3 day weekend!
