Hey Jamie, I enjoyed your post because you seemed to have put forth effort and time into organizing it, and coming up with examples. Also, the topic is relevant to current hip hop due to the fact that most of the beats in rap music today are not technically original pieces. Although, I would have wanted to read on how sampling in popular rap music affect me (the audience) directly or indirectly which would have taken your post to the next level, instead of just informing me about sampling. Overall, your blog post was put together very well, and flowed properly. Great Job!
