WAS DJ KHALED WRONG FOR SAMPLING OUTKAST? FOR THE RECORD

Last week, DJ Khaled sparked a lively debate with the SZA-assisted single, “Just Us,” from his 11th studio album Father of Asahd. The song, which samples OutKast’s 2000 hit “Ms. Jackson,” dismayed many hip-hop purists who weren’t thrilled that Khaled borrowed the classic record’s beat.

The track raised questions about the role of sampling in hip-hop and whether a song can be “too classic” to sample. Genius’ Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman explored the issue on the latest episode of ‘For The Record.’
