Music: Beatles Go Hip-Hop This Fall

"Just don't butcher our stuff mate.."

The Beatles, notoriously loath to clear samples (other than on Paul's Boutique by The Beastie Boys), are set to be one of the biggest stars in hip-hop this autumn. Wu-Tang Clan's comeback single "The Heart Gently Weeps" features interpolations of the classic White Album track "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" aided and abetted by John Frusciante, Dhani Harrison, and Erykah Badu. In November comes Ja Rule's "Judas" on his The Mirror album, which will sample directly from "Eleanor Rigby."
