I'm just completely blown away by your dedication to music bro, I share the same passion especially for hip hop, I was youtubing Today by Tom Scott earlier and I came across one of your videos in the related videos bar, it was vol. of the Top 10 greatest samples in hip hop series and I watched at least 20 of them, then I followed the link here and I have to tell you re music that you have on this hub samples and original track are phenomenal, I'm only 18 and I'm from Trenton NJ, and I really appreciate old school hip hop, funk, and sampled beats, my father is a DJ as well and I grew up on everything that you have on this website and I think I might need every song from every video you have on YouTube lol seriously, do you think you can put up a hub with all of that or even email me the music at lafamilia609@yahoo.com that would be incredible because I'm an aspiring DJ and producer myself and that would be a godsend, I would really appreciate it bro, keep jamming and get in touch with me through my email or if you have a Facebook add me Hector Collazo and the email is the one mentioned above, God Bless

Great series, I love it. Best thing I discovered on youtube so far.

Too bad about 66% of it is blocked in my country by greedy record companies – is there any way you could upload the stuff again to some other video hoster?

Thanks anyways, keep on!

Your information on the various Hip Hop samples is mind blowing! It will take me many months to get through them all. I look forward to it though.

I just wrote a new hub "Which 50 Hip Hop Songs Would You Save." I'd really value your input if you'd give it. Peace.
