Frances Bean Cobain Approved Nirvana Sample in Lil Nas X’s ‘Panini’

Frances Bean Cobain gave rapper Lil Nas X permission to sample Nirvana’s “In Bloom.”

In a recent interview, the rapper described how he got approval from Kurt Cobain’s daughter. “I put out the snippet [of ‘Panini’] and everyone was like, ‘Wow, he’s sampling Nirvana.’ I was like, ‘Where? I’m not sampling Nirvana, this beat doesn’t have Nirvana in it.’ Then, I listened to ‘In Bloom’ in full, and I was like, ‘Oh, okay,’” the rapper recalls.

“I actually heard from Kurt’s daughter,” he continued. “She’s the one who pretty much approved the song and she told me how much she loved the video for ‘Old Town Road’ and stuff … It actually got me into the album for the first time. I had never heard Nevermind.”
