The trick is to not sample some ridiculously blatant bull**** that everyone can pick out
One shouldn't take an 8 bar sample, loop it and consider it their own creation......
i'm with you on that one. as long as there's this thing that is utterly creative, that represents YOU as the individual behind it, that is something that other people won't come up with given the same set of tools sampling is as big a part of (hiphop)music as the kickdrum itself.

don't be foolish, loop up a classic, and expect to have a smooth ride. but if i chop some impact hits from a beethoven record, slice, pitch and stretch, until it fits my needs i think we're in another ballpark.

keep the music alive.
