  • People Using Other Artists Beats/Lyrics

    Just wondering,but as you probably know most rappers have re used a lyric that was used by someone else in the past e.g swifty says"too swift on my toes to get caught up with you hoes",same line that snoop used on aint no fun,and snoop uses"i got my hand on my gun cos they got me on the run",originally a grandmaster flash line,on 2 of americas most wanted. Theres dozens of other examples. Does an artist have to pay to use someone elses line,or is it all usually good natured seeing as its usually the line of an artist they respect?
    Also,whats the deal with payin to re use beats? You know what its like,your sitting by the tv and you hear some chciks song and your like"where the fucks that beat from"and then gradually the original lyrics come to you. What do they have to pay to re use the beat? If they use the same basic sound but make a new instrumental do they have to pay? Some German pop artist did this with California Love about a year ago now,it was the same sound,but it was a different type of keyboard or whatever used to make the instrumental. Quite alot of people are re using newish beats these days in Europe. I saw a video on one of the British music channels by Amy somethingorother,she sounds alot like ms dynamite,which had partially got Made You Look by Nas in it. And today I saw another video with some cute blonde girl which appears to have The Cross,also by Nas,sampled. Theyve messed with the sound slightly,but im fairly sure its it.

    It's kind of like they are showing respect to an artist are song that had a big impact on them, and so some of their older listeners can say "Oh yeah, I remember that shit" and go back and listen to it. It also gives the song they are copying more "classic" status. It's cool but sometimes it gets out of hand, like with Jay-Z and Lil Kim using to many Biggie lines. There's a fine line between using people's shit to give them props and straight up biting.

        Is it just me,or is the orchestral bit(think its made with violins) from the hook of In Da Club slightly altered and on the new Destinys Child song?
