This week on the Seven O'Clock Sample, we are running down the list of Grammy winner's who have used samples to create music.  The Grammy for Best rap/sung collaboration went to Jay Z for  “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake. 

 

 

While this song contains no direct samples, it does borrow a riff from Nirvana...

 

 

DUH!

 

So on this same album,  Timbaland and Swizz Beatz created a jam for the Jigga Man called "Open Letter".  

 

 

This track features a loop of Charles Bradley's "I Believe In Your Love".

 

 

Song made such a splash, that The White House press secretary Jay Carney, had to deny Jigga's claims in a press conference.  LOL!
