Logic went on a rant regarding sampling via Twitter earlier this week.

The Maryland lyricist is in album mode and is apparently frustrated regarding some sample clearances. He wrote on Monday:

“Just want to take a moment and say, F*** sample clearence. F*** clearing samples. F*** people taking all a producers money for not doing sh** and f*** the companies that say no just cuz. This is hip hop. Iā€™m tired of replaying sh**. F*** the money. This why mixtapes was so good.”Ā 

He further elaborated his stance on Wednesday around midnight, explaining how the process of tracking down the proper people to clear a sample can be cumbersome. Logic also added how the process can undermine the creative work of a producer who can’t get something cleared as well as the ins and outs of that side of the business.
