There’s a good post by Sean Fennessey over at Vulture today, about producer Jim Jonsin’s use of classic-rock samples in hip-hop songs. His most recent credit is the great new Cypress Hill track “Armada Latina,” which is built on the hook from Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” but his crowning achievement is, without question, getting Pitbull to be like, “What? Oh, fuck yeah dude, this sample of ‘Rock Lobster’ by the B-52’s is totally awesome.”
