UPDATE 6:25PM: Drake has responded to the sample flip of his uncle on Kanye's "No More Parties in LA" in the most Drake way possible on Instagram. The rapper posted someone holding up the vinyl cover for Larry Graham's 1980 single, "One in a Million You," along with the caption, "Few more parties in LA." Possibly the title of his remix? We'll here for it.
See below for the original story.
G.O.O.D. Fridays—well, in some cases G.O.O.D. Mondays—have returned as this week’s installment arrived a little later than expected from Kanye West. The Madlib-produced, Kendrick Lamar-featuring "No More Parties in LA" absolutely slaps, and Kanye certainly agrees based on the video above that features him rapping unreleased lyrics from the track: "Kid Cudi told me paint the black hole darker." One very interesting anecdote is that Drake's uncle is sampled on the track.
While the original instrumental was assembled by Madlib and 'Ye during the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions, Kim Kardashian revealed that Kanye put some last minute work into updating the track after a trip to Italy last week. When it finally hit Soundcloud, the digital crate diggers at WhoSampled were quick to trace the beat’s sonic origins. In addition to tracks by Junie Morrison and Johnny Guitar Watson, Kanye brought back the Ghostface Killah vocal sample he used on “New God Flow” back in 2012. More surprisingly, the instrumental for “No More Parties In LA” features a brief sample taken from a track recorded in 1980 by one Larry Graham, brother of Dennis Graham, and uncle to Drake. Kanye keeps spazzing on the cousin who stole his laptop, but the real familial star of this joint is Aubrey's Uncle Larry.
