Grammys to Allow Sampling in All Categories

Posted by: Ryan Dennehy (06/12/14)
Somehow the Grammys had yet to allow songs featuring sampling (primarily hip hop) or interpolation to be considered for every category, including majors like Song of the Year. That changed today, with the Recording Academy announcing a number of rule and name changes that included making songs that sample valid contenders for every category.

But didn't Stronger (which samples Daft Punk) win a Best Rap Solo Performance grammy? And there's gotta be many other examples, too. Guess I'm missing something here...

It was allowed for some categories (like rap song) but not all (like song of the year). That's why it's presented as being allowed across ALL categories now.

Think Kanye lifting Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" for "Stronger"

It's when you can't make your own music so you just copy and paste someone else's work and change it slightly.

Examples: half naked and almost famous - mgk. Rip-off of "young blood" by naked and famous.

"The show goes on" - (I think lupe fiasco). Rip off of "float on" by modest mouse

"Yolo"- lonely island. Rip-off of "whirring"- the joy formidable.
