Donutsample Analyses Samples on Music By Kanye, J Cole & More


Youtuber finds the samples from the works of Kanye West, Blackstar, J Cole and Kendrick Lamar.

A music lover after our own heart. Youtuber Donutsample has painstakingly scoured albums from the likes of Jamix xx, Kanye West and others to showcase the samples used. Some perceive this form of analysis as “snitching”, as it’s unclear (pardon the pun) whether the samples have been used with permission but from my perspective, this shouldn’t be the fault of the “exposer” as the responsibility of sample clearances lies with the artist or producer. These sorts of sample exhibitions are to display the creative process behind the work and inadvertently advertise the music of the original artist.

But for now, stream the samples from Outkast’s Stankonia below and check out Donutsample’s YouTube page.
