This was a little unexpected, but definitely welcome, especially considering the video for “I’ll Be In the Sky” is blowin’ up right now. If you haven’t heard the track, it’s one of the better ones (and my favorite) off the Who the Fuck is B.o.B.? mixtape.

I hope Michael Jackson (or whoever owns the Beatles catalog these days) doesn’t try and sue B.o.B. for the sample. He isn’t directly profiting from the song, because it’s from a mixtape, but that doesn’t mean people won’t try and get a quick buck these days. There were grumblings not too long ago of someone who was trying to bring a case against artists who sample on mixtapes and songs they aren’t selling, arguing the songs build the artist’s profile and they subsequently profit from that. Girl Talk may have changed that though.

Anyway, peep B.o.B. and support the man.

“Dusty Fingers,” the man who’s been releasing vinyl and CD compilations of songs artists have sampled in their songs, is going to reveal himself, according to HipHopDX. The dude’s been catching the wrath of some people for a long time, while being praised by others. Like my man Trees at JTTS said, I really hope he doesn’t get eaten alive by the RIAA. I think though, they would have gotten him by now if they really cared.

More + Dr Dre apparently having some volumes in his collection inside.
