Madvillain - Madvillainy (Samples Mix) by Boom Bap Beatnik on Mixcloud
DjWillderness said:when the album came out, madlib made a statement, to paraphrase, that posting sample mixes of madvillainy was detrimental to releasing the type of music he makes. glancing over that list, i know that george clintons publisher and thunder and lightning's heir are currently agressively pursing lawsuits against hip hop artists who sampled the music they represent without clearances, including against hip hop albums that have been out for a while. without a doubt, those types of mixes are really interesting to me. i just personally wouldnt want to post that kind of thing on the web where people who are looking for artists to sue can easily find that info. i can live without the mix if it harms the artist.
Madvillainy is almost 10 years old
If Stones Throw should have been sued for uncleared samples on this album it would have already happened
and it was originally posted on a website that I'm willing to think has a lot more traffic than the soul strut message board thread were I'm the sole contributor. ha
the George Clinton sample is awesome though! a buddy of mine showed it to me a couple years ago and I was like
I would be amused if Clinton were to sue over that though
