“A lot of musicians sample songs. Beyoncé and Michael Jackson also sample songs. Look at Kanye West, his album was sampled. It’s an integral part of any music.”
The singer also revealed that his newest single, Touch It, is a sampled song from Musical Youths Pass the dutchie.
“Touch It is a sampled song on the musical youth album, and that is the beauty of music“, he stated
Award-winning singer said his sampled songs are void of any copyright issues and done within legal terms making his career safe.
“My touch It songs and others on the golden boy album are within the legal consent by management. So I have no issues.”, Kidi
