What's a hip hop project without the use of samples?

Last week, the Toronto rapper shocked the world with the unexpected release of If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. If you thought to yourself, "Where do I know this song from?" then you've gotta hear this playlist from Gianni Lee & Mike Blud and check out the tracklist below.

The production draws on a wide range of music from classic hip hop and R&B to electronica and video games. Samples range from Eazy-E's "Eazy-Duz-It," sampled in "Energy," to video game music composer David Wise's "Haunted Chase," (from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest on Super Nintendo), sampled in "6 God." Pushing the playlist to 58 minutes are 4 bonus tracks for Drake songs from recent memory that weren't included on the album.

Listen above to the songs that inspired the production for this project.

Here's a list of the samples used on the mixtape:

1. Ginuwine - So Anxious (Legend, Madonna)
