“There’s no such thing as copying or biting in Hip Hop,” Tweezy Explains From A Producer’s Perspective. From how Tweezy has built his profile as a music producer, his views carry much more weight considering that he is highly experienced.
The award winning producer recently explained that in music there could never be anything like copying or biting. He explained that even after sampling once a song has been “reinvented” it becomes new and original.
“To me, there’s no such thing as “copying” or “biting” in hip hop. Possibly all of music. Only reinvention and adaptation. What was once “copied” becomes original once it’s reinvented into something else,” he wrote.
In addition explained what an SA Drill is.
“SA Drill is like any other genre. Inspired by a particular sound and crafted into something fresh and never done before. Is Kwaito original? No. It comes from House Music. Is house music South African? No. It’s said to be from Chicago,” he added.
Yes, #SADrill is inspired by UK Drill & Chicago Drill…but it is meant to sound like what proudly indigenous musicians would sound like on those beats. Meaning, for as long as you’re making a Drill song in any of the official languages in SA you’re making #SADrill.
