Santi Says


XXL: Besides “Brooklyn Go Hard,” Lil Wayne and Drake’s “Unstoppable” also sampled your song. What are your thoughts on rappers taking these indie records and bringing them to a broader audience?

Santi: I think it’s great. It takes artists like them to open up the minds of the mainstream audiences. Hopefully it will inspire people who only listen to hip-hop to do some research and check out other kinds of music.

I agree I feel that a lot of Hip Hop fans should add more genres to their playlist I always liked more genres but Drake helped me like even more Santigold and M.I.A. go hard by the way.

I hope more artist get exposure for real. There are so many artist that are slept on. Hip Hop sample (good sampling) is a little like "VH1 You Ot To KNow" by allowing cool artist to get some.
shine.

(WTF) bootleg of M.I.A!?! way two different artist. two different vibes foreal. Take the time to listen to both of their Albums then put some smart shit on here...Anyways love Santi she is DOPE and i give props to M.I.A she killed that performance at the GRAMMYS prego and all! but she is right... i liked her when she first came out and alot people have to wear the spots instead of stripes to like her music..I think its funny when people are stupid for change but when everyone finally gets on board they act like they wasnt bashin on it two years ago when it was NOTHING perfect example DRAKE. "room for improvement"its good crack music!!!!!

DOWNLOAD THAT SHIT!!!!!

Drake....I was listening to Hot 97 on Friday night and hearing Mister Cee talk about how you have the biggest buzz since 50 Cent with no video. I hear DJ Clue playing your mixtape everyday on his mixshow on Power 105. You made it. Northern Touch seems like such a long time ago.

The music is quite pleasant to the ears and Lil Wayne is creative in the last couple of years.
