Famous Samples: Tupac - Shorty Wanna Be a Thug, Kanye West - Drive Slow, Eminem - No One's Iller VS. Hank Crawford - Wildflower

(Repost from my old blog)


I was listening to the late Tupac's Shorty Wanna Be a Thug and the first thing I thought of was Kanye West's Drive Slow. I immediately thought Kanye Sampled it from Tupac's song. But then I Google searched "Kanye West Tupac Sample Drive Slow" and Hank Crawford's Wildflower which explained it all. I don't listen to Eminem like that, and in the video description for Wildflower, it said Eminem's No One's Iller also sampled Crawford.
