Mixing vocals with sample vocals

Hi People, the other night I quickly put an idea together, the problem I have is the main part is a vocal sample. My question is when the rapper goes over the beat what will be the best method for no clash

I tried to create a verse part for the rapper to breath but when I muted the main sample it did not sound right.

Anyway here is the link so you can get the idea, thoughts and opinions would be most appreciated.

My $.02 but I would mix the vocal sample like a backing vocal...... or a bit 'thinner (more eq cut). Sort of like you do with two instruments in the same range.

Man take that sh$t out of there. Find something else to fill the middle of the arrangement. It should sound fine without the vocal sample. What you are trying to do is extremely prone to becoming a cluttered mess.

i would probably put steep resonant hi-pass and lo-pass filters. I think thats what theyre called, when they have a pointy little boosts around the cutoff "wall". To get that trippy telephone sound. Im obviously self taught lol.

Maybe also 1176 plug in with super high ratio. And then maybe some phaser or flanger.
