Samples are one of the most beautiful aspects of hip-hop music. Sound engineers take a tidbits of an old song, and perfectly mix it with a modern beat. The result is a perfect melodic soup that pays homage to the past, while satisfying the present. Due to how expensive it can be to clear samples, sometimes hearing them on random songs can catch people off guard.
