Who Sampled What: Kanye West / Etta James
Taking it back to 2005. Off of Kanyeezy’s sophomore album “Late Registration”- the man was still solidifying his place in the rap game but did not need to solidify anything in the production game. Ye’ samples Etta James’ “My Funny Valentine” for the guitar picking melody and James’ vocals to create the lesser known bouncy gem “Addiction".
