I haven't had an issues thus far. In the past few years, it's been kind of the opposite. I've had a lot of manager and major label A&R people reaching out to me to give me acapellas/instrumentals to work with.

My favorite sample is "I'm On It (Kryptonite)."

It's an ongoing process that doesn't really have a definitive beginning or end. I sample new music almost every day. Oftentimes I'm thinking about my live shows. I might think that I need more 90s R&B or more 60s garage rock or whatever. I have a running list of things I want to work on. Then once I sample something, that's basically just the beginning. It's a long trial and error process. I try out hundreds of different combinations. When something clicks for me, I may try to work it in the live show. Sometimes, those things stay in the show, and other times, I'm not really feeling it. When I sit down to do an album, it's after a long period of time of experimenting with material at home and at shows, so I have a basic idea of what I think is the most interesting material.
