A history of Michael Jackson samples in map form

The MJ sample map

This diagram was doing the rounds (going viral) a few weeks ago, but as 'musical cartographer' Ethan Hein points out: it's "taken on a whole new significance in light of MJ's death."

It's an interesting (if tricky to navigate) trip down memory lane. How could we forget DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince's Rock The House/Ben mash-up thing?
