Eminem dropped a new album over the weekend that has everyone hyped. Mostly over his sh*t talk towards 'lesser' artists. But one thing that didn't slip through the cracks is his sample on "Good Guy". Illa Da Producer admitted to using Utada Hikaru's vocals from Simple & Clean albeit chopped to itty bitty pieces and then diced behind Marshall's lyrics. Obviously, hip hop taking samples from video games is no new trick, but it is very awesome to see an A-lister like Eminem use such amazing music from a classic JRPG like Kingdom Hearts.
If you haven't listened to the full album, Kamikaze, it is on Spotify.
Another cool sample was Wiz Khalifa's Never Been sampling Chrono Trigger, and J Cole sampling Kingdom Hearts II Darkness of the Unknown on his track Dollar and a Dream III.
