One of the many great things about Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d. city is the rich, well-selected array of samples. From dream-pop outfit Beach House‘s influence on “Money Trees”, to the use of Kanye West‘s “We Major” on ‘m.A.A.d. city’, (my favourite track) Kendrick went outside the traditional LA sound without ever leaving his unique Compton vision behind.
Gianni Lee and Mike Blud, a.k.a. Babylon Cartel, have decided to help any inquiring hip hop fans by compiling all the samples onto one free project. Here’s the full tracklisting for the samples:
