In the latest vlogbrothers video, Hank Green shares his enthusiasm for remixes and the use of samples in music:

Update: Brad Sparks on Twitter added that Eminem did talk about his inspiration for “My Name Is”, on Genius:
Eminem himself mentioned that Dr Dre just happened to have the record spinning at his house and Em just went overtop it. He even linked to the song in his annotation on Genius. https://t.co/vFWPssPAto— Brad Sparks (@cdigames) 12 janvier 2018
