LP sampled in rapper TKO Capone's songs

Recommended Posts

I did a forum search about this guy and nothing came up, so I'm guessing most of you have never heard of him, sssoooo...

 

A while back this Oklahoma rapper called TKO Capone did this song in which he sampled a clean guitar line from the Opeth song Credence. I thought it was a rather interesting use of a song from such a different genre, but it worked surprisingly well in this new context too.

 

I know, what on Earth does this have to do with LP? Well, today I decided to take a look at the guy's other uploads as well, and I found not one, but two videos that sample Linkin Park songs. Interestingly enough, one of them is actually labeled as containing a Metallica sample, but in reality it is built upon No More Sorrow's opening guitar melody. And while the Opeth one worked out just fine, I don't think these two do so.

 

What do you guys think?

This reminds me at the German rapper Bushido. He's not using Linkin Park samples but I guess he likes their videos :-D

 

I have no idea how I put the embedded player in here... The BB Code Help isn't much of a help...
