What? Like Flo rida, eminen, pit bull, Acon etc... The list is never ending. If you like an artist-- then like them. Don't stop because OTHERS tell you, you shouldn't.
Off the top of my head, (I'm sure there's more) in the song "You're Never Over" he took the song "Cry Little Sister" which I recognized from the "Lost Boys" soundtrack and "sampled" it. Personally I don't care and love both songs. Just saying it's done more than you know by many artists.
sampling songs is different than ripping them off. doing a cover is a tribute, doing a bad cover is an atrocity and charging money to people for doing a bad cover is an act of war. rap music mainly uses electronic synthesizers and music samples to make beats because it's supposed to showcase the poetry, not the music. EDM mostly takes original work and tries to give it new life in a new genre. Flo Rida takes EDM and tries to put poetry over it like rap so you get a weird fusion there. sometimes good and sometimes not.
