Sample Justice? DJ Felli Fel feat. Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon & Fatman Scoop - I Wanna Get Drunk vs Van Halen - Jump

Did They Do the Sample Justice?
Van Halen - Jump
DJ Felli Fel feat. Three 6 Mafia & Lil Jon  - I Wanna Get Drunk
When I first heard this track, I just shook my head as a truly classic rock track had clearly been bastardized into a modern club anthem. I love me some Three Six, don't get it twisted, but this was a little over the top even for me. I've never been a fan of Fatman Scoop and his yelling over tracks, in fact I prefer Lil Jon's ad libs over his...which isn't saying much. Needless to say, having both on one track is waaay too much.

100% chance this is going to become some sort of a bar/party anthem because of the well known sample and fun, get drunk theme of the track. Found it pretty funny how DJ Paul talks about dollar beers and Bud Light on his verse. When was the last time you heard a rapper talk about cheap beers?...or light beer for that matter? Who knows, maybe product placement and reaching a more targeted demographic is becoming a financial consideration for rappers nowadays?

GWDJ Verdict: Take it for what it's worth, it's a pretty ignorant and harmless party anthem. If you're slammin' shots back and goin' Ham, this would be on the playlist. As far as sample justice, there's no way in hell they did the original justice My only question is, did Van Halen clear this sample and why? Never hurts to make some extra royalties I guess??
