Its normal if you ask me. Same shit was in the whole GFunk/ Death Row era. All the beats sounded the same back then too.

Yup. It all sounds the same becuz that's the style now. Everybody wanna use the same producers. Once one song is a hit and the beat is catchy, everybody gonna want a hit so they gonna make their song sound like anothers so it'll be big.

Yung Joc 'It's Goin Down' = Yung Joc ' I Know You See It'
Neyo 'So Sick' = Neyo 'Sexy Love'
Beyonce Jay Z 'Crazy In Love = Beyonce Jay Z 'Deja Vu'
Ying Yang Twins 'Wait' = David Banner 'Play'

etc. etc.

It's kinda sad how an artist makes their own songs some similar :laugh:

You fucken disrepectful whore!!show some RESPECT TO THE RZA NIGGA!!!west said he bit of the RZA.so how he made something the WU-production been doing for years...young lost souls like yourself dont know shit.just talking shit.thats why hiphop is dead.

LOL, you mad, kid?  Calling me a "young lost soul"?  I'm obviously older than you, son.

I ain't disrespecting anyone's style...I'm disrespecting the biters who have copied RZA/Kanye's style to get airplay.  That ain't the same thing.  Shut the fuck up and do not talk down to the GOD again, cracker.  I am a superior being to you.
young punk go study your art.you sounding mad stupid boy....how you put west ::) in front of rza,hell!like my man said, marley marl kicked alot of that shit off......young ass trick,staten island is where that style started off.(pe,rza,wu-production...........marley marl(QUEENS)...now can u buy that, fucken rookie.........and everybody here knows im a nigga homie.so what you want.hiphop101 ass nigga.

Everything sounds the same because theres no real musicians making music!  You got all these 808s and anolog claps and snaps!  These simple ass synth patterns!  Anybody can do that!  Wheres the creativity at?  I'ma be honest wit you the real producers are the ones who can play instruments and creative MUSIC!  BattleCat plays all instruments, DJ Quik plays all instruments, Terrace Martin, Lt Hutton, Jelly Roll, Fredwreck, Soopafly etc.  Even producers like Hi Tek, Focus, Mel Man, Neptunes, Timbaland, Denaun Porter of D-12, all of Outkast's porducers, Raphael Saadiq!  These are the ones that are using their God givin gift to CREATE!  Nowadays these dudes are using music generators, clicking on the computer, calling themselves producers! They ain't got not one keyboard, drum machine nothing!  We need to get back to the being musicians not FRUITY LOOPERS!

Hempskide2, Rza rarely did sped-up soul samples, at least not in the  way Kanye did it.  However, did Kanye take some iof his style from RZA???  Of course, that is easy to see for fans that actually been down with the Wu since day 1.  However, to say Kanye's music sounds similar to anything Rza has done is a little farfetched.  And even if Rza was doing it, it wasn't his signature sound like it is Kanye's. And really, producers ALWAYS been incorporating eithger funk or soul samples, way before RZA, so to say Kanye stole from RZa is ridiculous.  And really,

i agree 100%

i've been saying this for years.  people are slowly getting more and more tired of this current state of music. watch you'll see more artists going towards something new. rap will always be around , like metal, punk, and soul music ...but i see another genre coming up . i see more artists gravitating towards being more like the gorillaz and gnarls barkley

Amen.  It will never stop being ironic to me that the dudes who complain about how the West ain't on top now don't appreciate that THAT is the reason why.

Also, who said they hear Lil Jon synths on the radio?  IMO, what everyone's doing now is the sped-up soul sampling shit that Kanye has made popular.

Actually Lil Jon is a monster on the guitar and can make some very good r&b tracks when thats what is needed (not like the Usher single, I mean actual melodic r&b shit). Besides, a producer does not need to play an instrument, thats not necesarily what a producer does. For instance, Dre is a producer, but does not necessarily make the beat. Quincy Jones produced the Thriller album but did not play a single note on the record.

actually the musics gotten better , way more instrumentation now then it was back in 93 ..

HIP HOP MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN 100% A PRODUCERS GAME.. without a hot beat, you could have the sickest lyrics your shit will go wood and people wont play it

think about if you had nas spitting his ether lyrics to chicken noodle soup or
DMX spitting where the hood at over D4L laffy taffy

I like how he recreated Clint Mansell's "Lux Aeterna" in "Throw It Up" Ft. Pastor Troy..That melody is dope !
