I guess "skint" means without money... which sounds ridiculous since The Weeknd is on a major.
I think he was referring to the other, largely unsuccessful hip hop artists who sample Portishead frequently.

The song blows and this dude has consistently ruled for nearly two decades, I hope the subsequent lawsuit wipes Kiss Land out.

God, I wish there were as many glib replies when American artists use words like "stoked".

I'm not sure there was a single commenter in this thread who didn't know Portishead...

You would think this artist would have enough respect to not use the sample when it was denied...completely disrespectful.

This might be some of the best coverage portishead gets. They should thank him.

I highly doubt Portishead's legacy was hinging on being sampled by The Weeknd.

This is all about respect.
The reason he's mentioning hip hop specifically is because of how they tend to use samples. Believe it or not, most artists aren't into someone taking the core of your song and just singing on top of it.

What he's saying makes total sense. The Weeknd deserves to get sued up the ass for this one. If you ask, you better comply because the artist made their decision.

This is a prime example of doing it the wrong way. I can't think of anything they could've done to handle this in a worse way.

I swear to god, it's like all of the sensible people logged on today. This is why I don't listen to 85% of rap, hip hop, and "R&B" (aka modern soul, R&B was just uppity blues in the 50s)
