Long time producer and legendary figure Roy Ayers recently sat down with OutDaBox TV to discuss longevity in music how he feels about sampling in hip-hop (which he supports). Ayers would be the first since one of his most well known tracks “Everybody Loves The Sunshine” has been sampled on numerous occasions by the likes of Mary J. Blige, Pete Rock & more. Still doing his thing at 70, Ayers is the bridge between hip-hop’s roots of building upon the past and its possible future.
