I used to be a big defender of sampling in rap music, because it was taking something old, changing it, and creating something completely new and original from it. But in the last few years, lazy producers just take the beat of a tom tom club song and have there star sing or rap over it, no originality, just copycatting.

Kanye west recently did that with a Daft Punk song, one that I loved, so it was awful when it came on the radio, sounding exactly the same as it did 5 years ago, exept the music being intterrupted by Kanye west's annoying voice, who has never said anything worth listening to in his life except "George Bush doesn't care about black people"

Well here's the original- minus the annoying "yeah! Yeah!" and "Uh! Uh!" And to the purveyors of pop music today, ruining all the best songs, I say "make it"
