Why are musicians the absolute biggest hypocrites on the planet?
Stupid meme rap niggers aren't the only musicians to demand free reign to sample whatever they want for free while simultaneously shitting on people that want to listen to their music for free.
This sort of. He doesn't ask the artist's permission to sample their work, he asks the record company who actually owns their music. Hell, it's not even him who asks, just people who work for him.
Is he actually complaining about piracy now? I know he's gotten in trouble for botching/omitting proper credits for samples, but shit man. Almost find it hard to believe.
