Bigmouths Strike Again: Hip Hop Hubris Edition

If it weren’t for this person, most of America would not be listening to hip hop.

I was ridiculed for sampling. They made an issue of me?I was the guinea pig who made money from a sample so they came after me. I got sued. Now it’s OK. Now they have sample-clearing companies. I put hip-hop in front of a lot of people’s ears who never considered listening to hip-hop?basically mainstream America.

Guess the pioneer, take the jump.
