So today I heard Wiz Khalifa's most recent mix tape Taylor Allerdice and the song "Never Been Part II ft. Amber Rose and Rick Ross" samples the "Secret of the Forrest" from the Chrono Trigger soundtrack.
I did not play the game but I watched the Endurance Run and I recognized it immediately. They sure spent a lot of time in that forrest.
I wonder if the producer Sledgren played the game when he was a kid. I know others have used video game music in this kind of way but I don't know of anyone this mainstream unless I'm mistaken. Is there anyone I'm missing?
Just kind of cool to hear.
