Is DMX okay? I respect some of the things he shares in this video. What makes Drake think that he can build an Aaliyah album without the people who she loved and worked with? Naturally there are two sides to the coin. If Drake does the work, he doesn’t owe Aaliyah’s camp any money but he does owe them the respect of sitting down with them to discuss who she was as a person, artists and friend! Otherwise, he is just sampling. People sample all of the time. He can contact her record label and family to sample.
