One of the best things about hip hop is that it can unlock a wealth of music via its samples.

This week has seen the release of one of the most critically acclaimed and hyped in a while, Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d City and Babylon Cartel have kindly put together this mixtape of all the samples on the record.

Running chronologically with the album, the mix features household names such as Kool and the Gang, Kanye West and Janet Jackson but also Beach House (the Ohio duo's sound is becoming increasingly popular with samplers having been used by The Weeknd already). Download the mixtape for free, here.
