    Default Do they sell sheet music for rap?

    from www.billboard.com:

    Same Sample Powering New Jay-Z, Diddy Tracks

    November 20, 2006, 3:00 PM ET

    Brian Garrity, N.Y.
    The "ubiquitous hip-hop sample of the moment" award goes to the horn loop from Johnny Pate's "Shaft in Africa."

    The track, from the 1973 soundtrack of the same name, is prominently featured in "Show Me What You Got," the lead single from Jay-Z's new "Kingdom Come" (Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam), and "We Gon' Make It," the opening song from Diddy's recently released "Press Play" (Bad Boy).

    Chalk it up to a case of fluke timing for the hip-hop superstars, as the tracks have different producers and were cleared months apart from each other. "Show Me What You Got" was produced by Just Blaze and cleared in September, while K-Def is the producer on "We Gon' Make It," which was cleared last summer, according to a source familiar with the situation.

    For Geffen Records, which controls the master rights to the Pate track, and EMI Music Publishing, which controls the publishing rights for Pate, as well as for Jay-Z and Diddy, it's a happy coincidence. The companies get to collect on the track twice, and on two of the larger hip-hop releases of the year no less.

    Diddy's album already went to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 200,000 units in its first month, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Kingdom Come," due tomorrow (Nov. 21), is one of the most anticipated albums of 2006, and “Show Me What You Got” rocketed 47-8 on last week’s Billboard Hot 100.


    Meanwhile, "Show Me What You Got" is a source of all sorts of other deja vu as well. The song also features a sax loop of Lafayette Afro-Rock Band's "Darkest Light" from the 1976 release "Malik" -- a sample made most famous on the Wreckx-N-Effect 1992 hit "Rump Shaker."

    What's more, Jay-Z isn't the first artist to pair samples from "Shaft in Africa" and "Darkest Light." Pennsylvania old-school rap outfit Tuff Crew did it on the 1989 track "Soul Food." But while Jay-Z and Tuff Crew borrow the same sax sample from "Darkest Light," "Soul Food" uses the drum elements from "Shaft in Africa" rather than the horns.

    Sure..... all you would have to do would be to get the sheet music from whatever song was "sampled" and then cut & paste it.

    Now how to transcribe turntable scratching as musical notes, there's the real challenge.

    The only sheet of paper that "music" belongs on is a sheet of toilet paper.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    Do they sell sheet music for rap?
    fuckin hilarious.
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    As someone else alluded to - they do sell sheet music for rap - it comes extra-soft, 2-ply, scented, and "in a shithouse near you"...
