The Naked and Famous Comment on Machine Gun Kelly Sample

Posted by - 11:35 AM on 03/28/12
The Naked and Famous recently wrote a blog about Machine Gun Kelly sampling their song "Young Blood." It has since been deleted, but with a little cache magic you can see it here. Machine Gun Kelly responded on twitter.

I was wondering what TNAF thought about this...then I realized they probably had to clear the sample in the first place.

Unless the label can just do that on its own?

Yes. Love TN+F, despise MGK. Yeah, their management most likely cleared the sample (Young Blood is being sampled by dozens of hip hop artists right now) but still fuck this kid.

I don't think I've ever even heard of this guy.

The Naked & Famous still rule, though.

Only the person who owns the rights to the song can clear a sample. I also think if they sold their publishing, that is who now clears samples. There is no way they haven't sold their publishing rights, so yeah.

He just won the MTVU Breaking Artist Woodie. No fucking clue how he beat out this list: Lana Del Rey, Porter Robinson, Childish Gambino, Fun., Kendrick Lamar, Fake Problems, A$AP Rocky, amongst a few others.
