The Raider Klan stands to benefit from similar confusion. Purrp’s “Pheel Tha Phonk 1990” repurposes Three 6 Mafia’s 1998 single “Late Nite Tip” by way of lightly overlayed tape hiss and Mortal Kombat samples; fellow Raider producer Key Nyata’s “Get Fucked Up 1994” wholly jacks Gangsta Pat’s 1995 Memphis classic “I Wanna Smoke”; Amber London’s “Low MF Key Raider Klan” swipes its instrumental from Doc Million, an obscure Ohioan rapper whose 1997 album couldn’t have sold more than a few thousand copies. None are credited.
Andrew Nosnitsky (or easier put: Noz), from his excellent opening column for Pitchfork called “Diamonds and Wood”.
Remember when one person liked my review of Amber London’s mixtape that critiqued its questionable use of nostalgia and Youtube “finds”. Well, I doubt you do, but this column along with Brandon Soderberg’s review of Spaceghostpurp’s album for Spin, shows at least some critical backlash towards these rappers, who’ve been digging up old Youtube videos and in some cases redoing songs and calling them their own without any acknowledgement of the original source material.
