    I doh accept that, I hate that.
    I have ah CD in meh car and de riddim does only change every three songs..ridiculous.

    But I think it's acceptable in the US, dey just wait longer to reuse.

    They are accepted in African American culture. Just not in the same way it is in Caribbean culture. In the forms of mixtapes and rap battles is where I'd say they are used.

    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve

    copyright/sample laws, if you check a lotta 90's hip hop it was more common then to have similar "riddims" cause they was all sampling the same tunes i.e. James Brown, George Clinton, etc.

    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.
