I have no problem with him doing that, he does have some past dope verses so why not sample himself.

Well Nas Is Like was produced by Premo, and hes quite known for using samples of rappers.. But I understand Nas sampling himself, if I could write lyrics like those I would remind everybody of them all the time haha

LOL, we can tell the same bout Mos Def (Mathematics) and Big L (Big Picture), they were both biting their own lyrics... Or, maybe, we should kill Premo for inventing that shit? Think about it.

OK, sampling, biting, whatever. They gotta be fucking non-creative MC's, RBX-sort, speaking same line in 8 songs. Is that right? They gotta be fucking dumb if they unable to write their own chorus, so they sample their former lyrics right? This is what the dumb thread-starter thought, and then y'all wanna kill me because of ONE fucking missed word. Btw y'all knew I mean.

Goddamn, and then I get this kind of diminishing intelligence shit.

yea because Turntablism is a part of hip hop and that's Premo's signature sound to cut a chorus from a artist's old catalog

Honestly there is nothing wrong with even saying the line like in Nas' Theif's Theme because it fit the theme & made u think of that ol Nasty Nas shit

so all this dumbness about "uncreativity" is retarded

its kinda hard for Big L to 'bite' himself for the big picture when he was dead, hence why so much of the album is made up of his freestyles if u get Harlems Finest, and there is a major difference between sampling and biting not just wotever same thing, sampling is crediting and most often sampling the original cut from the originator of the line,biting is takin sum shit and passing it off as ur own, big diff

this is such a funny topic..


I would rather see Nas sample himself than anyone else cause he is one of the illest plus, Rakim used to do it all the time.


I feel as though that they are so good it would be a travesty if they sampled anyone else.
