for the most part, i think sampling is sampling, i dont care what
the source is. however, what dre did, if the reports from people
familair with the original source material are true, is just stick
an entire song over a beat and had a singer and rakim's vocals put
over it. that is barely even sampling in my eyes, thats just about
taking a song and using it how you want to.
