Cale's Venus in Furs viola used by rapper

Cale mentioned it in the 2021 interview in VU's Ultimate Music Guide, don't remember having seen this mentioned here before, so searched for it.
Never heard of Waka Flocka Flame before [don't really keep track with new music/artists as much as before].
Anyway here's WFF rapping over Cale's viola from Venus In Furs.

Sounds pretty good to me!

Well...the risk of using samples that outshine the new original material laid over it are that it makes the listener want to stop listening to the track and go back and listen to the source song that was sampled.

This old 12" single by Spong from 1998 samples Venus In Furs. Not a bad effort tbh

any sounds that we feel would detract from the performance has been left in place
