I love that Can I Live is literally just him rapping over the instrumental of Isaac Hayes' The Look of Love, no chopping or splicing or anything. Song was a ready made hip-hop beat back in 1970.

That was ok to do in the 90s. Nowadays people look down on a lifted loop because it requires no "talent" lol. Not to mention the copyright issues.

I have no problem with it, sometimes less is more. Snoop used the same instrumental but due to copyright issues it was removed from later issues of Doggystyle, so yeah there is the copyright problem.

Relistened to this for the first time in a while recently. Feelin' It totally made me forget I lived in California. People always say illmatic paints a picture of ny, but no song has ever made me feel like I'm actually there like Feelin It.



Also Dead Presidents II is one of the best hip hop songs of all time
