Kanye West sample map

Thanks, wikipedia and Rap Sample FAQ.

 

I'm a big fan of Mr West, his public antics notwithstanding. I find his use of samples and Auto-tune highly inspirational. Just about every Kanye song except the ones on 808s has a sample or two in it, so as usual, for space reasons I omitted tracks using only one sample from one artist. Especially interesting to me is the song "Good Morning", which includes a Jay-Z sample from a song that samples a Slick Rick song that samples a different Slick Rick song that samples A Taste Of Honey. That's a lot of recursion.
