    GRAVYTY Productivity Power Hour Mix #38 - Wait...I Know That Song

    Today, we're introducing you to Mix #38. Mathematically, there are only so many combinations of notes and patterns that can exist within music. There is bound to be repetition which is why covers have been used so frequently in place of writing original music. 

    Naturally, profiting off of someone else's work would be unethical! Where the legal lines get a bit dicier is in the use of song sections. In other words: sampling. Numerous artists find ways to rework certain sections of songs to create something else new entirely, most notably in hip-hop to create the beat.

    On this playlist, you can expect to recognize a number of these songs, but not because you are familiar with them. These are the songs that have been used in some of hip-hop's most well-known beats throughout history. 

    We hope this list will motivate you for the next hour to help you do the best work of your life.
