Some DMX supporters did not like how Yung Bleu sampled the legendary rapper on his new Tantra album. From the 1998 album, It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, DMX’s “How’s It Goin’ Down” is referenced in Yung Bleu’s “What Type Of Games” off Tantra. On Twitter, the rapper, 28, responded to the criticism. “I understand that’s such a great song, and it will never be duplicated, no matter what, by any artist! Classic! I’m paying homage!” tweeted Yung Bleu on Sunday night. Bleu continued, “And mainly bringing more income to his estate at that! That’s what matters to me. Long Live X. We talked on the phone two weeks before his passing.” Is there a song that includes a sample that you think is better than the original?
