NEWS: Wu-Tang Clan Do NOT Have First Legal Beatles Sample

The good people at Wu-Tang Clan got a little too excited when they posted on their blog how they had the first ever legally cleared Beatles sample on 8 Diagrams track 'While My People Weep'. They clarified in a statement to MTV News.

"The statement on Wu-Tang Clan's myspace site is incorrect and we apologize for any confusion it may have caused. We did not sample the Beatles, rather we did an interpolation of the classic George Harrison composition 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps.' In a historic collaboration, Dhani Harrison, son of George, through his friendship with the RZA, played guitar on the song and he himself helped secure the reuse license. Also appearing on the song are John Frusciante, guitar player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Erykah Badu singing the chorus. To satisfy everyone's curiosity, the song will be streamed exclusively on tonight."
