The music scene is full of urban music (and other genres) producers that love to sample. Sampling can be considered an art in itself. I don't necessarily agree but what I can say is that using someone else's creation to create your own is like wearing someone else's clothes when you have your own. The mindset, to me, is I want to look as good as you do or better than you did with the same stuff you got. I honestly have no problem with a person that samples. I really didn't care to do it myself. I may have sampled 3 or 4 classic songs in my life as an urban music producer. Even then, I didn't care to do it.

This is not the basis on why I won't add sample based music in my catalog. My main motive for this is because I want a catalog of original material. Original music is easier to clear for licensing. There's no red tape to cut through or any aspect of copyright infringement to worry about.
