I'm not sure if this is the entire universe of Michael Jackson samples, but this map is pretty cool nonetheless. A quick explanation:
- Michael, of course, is at the center
- The next ring out are all of his songs
- Third ring are the songs that were created from samples in the second ring
- Outermost ring are the artists who used the sample
A double hat-tip is in order: First, to Victoria Clark, who hipped me to it and to Ethan Hein, who created the map. Turns out he's done sample maps for a bunch of other artists. You can find other examples here.
