Who Did Kanye West Sample on “Runaway”? [BEAT JACKER]

Being the student of hip-hop that Kanye West is, it should come as no surprise that he digs deep. For the drums to his new single “Runaway,” ‘Ye put the 10 second intro breakbeat used on Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s 1992 album cut, “The Basement,” to good use. And with Pete’s said involvement in the creation of West’s new album, this one is a no-brainer. Let’s have a toast to the sam-ple!
