About

"Damn, Son! Where'd You Find This?" is a popular sound sample or trap music drop used very often on trap music songs. The drop features music producer Shadoehaze saying the line and has been used online as a reaction sound effect.

Origin

The sample first rose to prominence in the late-00s on the Gucci Mane and OJ da Juiceman's Trapaholics mixtapes.

On August 6th, 2012, the YouTube account AllTrapMusic posted the sample. The post received more than 1.7 million views in less than eight years (shown below).



Spread

On Feb 6, 2013, the producer Shadoehaze uploaded an introduction video to brief more information behind the popular sound sample made by himself. In less than eight years, the video received more than 2.4 million views (shown below, left).

Later that year, on July 9th, 2013, YouTuber George Akimkin shared a video of actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse lipsynching to the line. The post received more than 4.7 million views in less than seven years (shown below, right). The video comes from a mockumentary that jokes about Mintz-Plasse is the voice.[2]



On December 27th, 2013, Vice[1] published an interview with Shadoe Haze about the sample. He said:

That drop had been cut, it was just ad-libbed in a bunch of crap I sent out to a bunch of people. Once it came out I couldn't track down who the original client was because back then I wasn't keeping in my library that I had ever done. He called me and said "Hey, did you know that your voice is on this?" I was like "No, what are you talking about?" He sent me the link and he played it for me. I had no idea. He said "this is like, everywhere." There are people around here who do know, but the average Joe that talks to me, even the people who listen to me on the radio--they don't know. It cracks me up a little bit.

The following year, on September 10th, 2014, YouTuber Nyanners published a rap cover "I am ur leader" featuring the sample at the beginning. The post received more than 4.1 million views in less than six years (shown below).
