Nicki Minaj Samples Joe Satriani; He Thinks It’s “Amazing”

Posted by on December 2, 2010

Chances are, you don’t know who Nicki Minaj is, and she’s probably ok with that. A Kanye West protege, she raps on his latest CD and currently has the #2 album in the country with Pink Friday. She also sampled Joe Satriani on “Right Through You,” a song on said album. The song takes a sample of “Always With Me, Always With You,” a song from his most popular album, 1987’s Surfing With the Alien, as the basis of the song. But unlike with Coldplay, Satch isn’t about to get his knickers in a twist. In fact, he tweeted about how amazing it is, saying “What a trip it is to hear my song in Nicki’s hands. She’s amazing.” Check out the original below.
