Rap artists have always had a history of sampling music in their own songs. From Rick James’ “Super Freak” in an MC Hammer song, to Jay Z’s use of the song ”Hard Knock Life” from the movie Annie, you can hear familar tunes in hip-hop music.
But, a country song used on a rap? Now, that’s pretty rare.
Nick Cannon, singer and host of “America’s Got Talent,” has taken a piece of The Band Perry. He samples their #1 smash hit, “If I Die Young,” in his anti-bullying anthem “Die Young.” The song will be featured in his album, due in stores later this year.
