First off, apologies for the absence yesterday. Things got a bit hectic, and all three writers were unable to get content up.
Anyway, while we were gone, it looks as though Kendrick Lamar may be in the midst of a bit of trouble. Wolfsongs Limited, a group that represents the Alan Parsons Project. Their song, “Old and Wise” is sampled, and the group is saying that they neither got notice nor a request for permission for Lamar or his representation to use a sample of the track.
First, we’ll look at the APP’s track from 1982
Next, we’ll look at Lamar’s track from what I still consider to be the 2nd-best hip hop album so far this decade.
