This is for those of you who missed the --dv--l-ny Original Samples when it was posted all over the message boards and hip-hop sites a couple months ago. Most of these were taken down because someone claiming he's the artist in question sent a random message on Myspace and requested that the files be taken down. After scouring the web for a couple hours, I finally hit the jackpot with a Sharebee link on Google that was cleverly disguised as a random title. I am being vague about the actual artist, because I don't want these files to be removed right away. However, those of you who know what the artists look like will recognize them in the photo above.
I'm not trying to go against the artist's wishes, but damn if these aren't the most obscure samples to ever be incorporated into a hip-hop record.
Further, I don't believe that it was the artist who actually sent the message. It's probably just some disgruntled fan of his music who felt that posting these original sample sources served as an injustice to his name. I mean let's think about this for a minute. How many musicians, movie stars, etc. actually run their own Myspace page anyway? These songs are public domain, so just think of this as being another eclectic batch of tunes that just happen to be related to this hip-hop maven. I will remove these sample sources if I receive a special request from the artist's record label to do so.
I'm not going to post a trackslist or tell you where the samples are used. You can figure out most of them if you listen to the artist's album. Sorry for being so cryptic, but I think you guys can figure it out.
Hope you enjoy this!
