When sampling a song what exactly do you guys listen for? Words? Drum loops? or ways you can flip the words in a creative way?
i listen for good parts to chop up, like hot orchestral or brass licks with strong individual hits, and good parts to loop.
Yeah i look just for little open sections with interesting instruments over them, i usually make my sampled beat more towards the epic sounds, so a lot of orchestral stuff catches my ear.

Sampling is tricky to explain. I try to think about taking a small piece (or pieces) of a song expanding it into something dope an MC could go over. You can use pretty much anything that catches your ear. It helps to get on WhoSampled and check out how some hot beats were done. On the real tip though- there's like a million ways to flip samples
edit: the beat in my sig is all samples

breaks or parts without/little-to-no drums
Dude whatever sounds good to your ears, use it.
As others have said, sample any section of audio which sounds good to you. The more you do this, the more you'll realize what will and won't work.
Thanks a lot guys for your advice and to @Dr.Strangelove I will definitely check out that site. They have the sample's listed for so many songs.
