The following YouTube vid is a mini-documentary, produced circa 1988, exploring samples in hip hop and the legalities surrounding their use. It features some well know names like DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, De La Soul, Prince Paul, and the Beastie Boys to name a few. The mini-doc has clips with the "haters" from way back that believed sampling is stealing and that it is straight up wrong. Included in this "haters" group are Tom Petty, Lou Reed, and Debbie Gibson (!). This video is pure gold so check it out and let us know what you think!
