Rapper Wiz Khalifa Completely Rips Off Chrono Trigger Song

Will @ VGTribune:

Early today I stumbled upon a rap video by Wiz Khalifa. While that normally wouldn’t even be news worthy, its the fact of what is in the video that is.

You see Wiz, has completely ripped off Schala’s Theme from Chrono Trigger. While its common place for hip-hop, and rap to sample songs, they usually don’t take the entire song. They take a section of it and repeat it. This is not the case. Either way, give it a listen and let us know what you think about the subject...

Oh yeah its a mixtape as well so the nerds need to stop complaining about the rights.

there is so much garbage in hip hop these days, Wiz is unrecognized exception imo

But I kind of like this guy. He reminds me of one of my friends, he kind of flows like him too. Wiz got swagger like Snoop though, I'd love to smoke with that fool.

But in all honesty he probably has no idea. Dude probably gave him a beat, he liked it, he rhymed on it.

@below: Your concussion is right, but not in the way you think. I don't listen to new rap because most of it is garbage. The only new album I like is the Nas and Damian Marley album. If it's mainstream, I tend to stay away from it and there are just too many new underground rappers to get through all the bullshit to someone actually good.

"there is so much garbage in hip hop these days, Wiz is unrecognized exception imo"

why do i always here this? even if its true i feel that people go out of there way to reiterate it over and over again even if it has nothing to with the topic

unsurprisingly i never hear "there is so much garbage in rock these day" conclusion? the people who complain about crappy rap are the same people who dont listen to any of it and listen to rock instead

end rant/

on topic, this is old and wiz was not the first nor will he be the last to sample game music

LMAO @ "Completely Rips off"

Non of those people ripping rap or hip hop have never heard of:

Olive Oil
or the like.

And also if you don't like the music don't listen to it.

silvacrest2950d ago

right now im only listening to old stuff as well lupe fiasco, his new album is the only one im looking forward to and your right about underground stuff as well as wiz's flow

however i dont believe all mainstream stuff is junk, either you like it or dont but if you dont it does not mean its universally junk for everyone else

Immortal3212950d ago

it ain't all about video games.

shiner2950d ago

@ SkyCrawler, give Aesop Rock a listen too, you wont be dissapointed.

How many mix tapes have their own music video?

Music videos cost a lot of money to produce. There would be no music video if money wasn't being made.

How is that ripped? It's an Obvious Sample from a Rapper who Played alot of games as a kid. Wiz khalifa is like 23 he still plays games aswell. If the guy that did the article actually went and searched some more about Wiz I dont think he would of made a story out of this.

If you want to hear how to use videogame music as beats, listen to K-murdock:

Wiz is pretty terrible.

Cloudberry2950d ago

He took the end of "To Faraway Time" (the ending theme) and integrated it to the beginning of his song, "Icebox".

RememberThe3572950d ago

My homeboy makes beats and the things they listen to to find samples is insane.

But in this case it doesn't sound similar enough to me. He may have interpolated it, though. But I think they just sound similar.
