: To whom it may concern;
: My name is Lakeshia and in the near future I will begin work on my rap album. My question to you is how do I use copywritten music? There are at least two samples I want to loop and the entire instrumentals of one other. I'm not sure if I'm suppose to contact the record company(s) or the person(s)listed on the credits or is this one of the many jobs of an entertainment attorney? If you can help me, please feel free to e mail me or call me at 954 777 4722.

Dear Lakeshia Ruffin,
There is compulsory licencing, but you must pay. Trace the music.
