This still needs some work. I challenged to use the virtual instruments in Logic's "Hip Hop" template, and found that it gave me some freedom, as I spend too much time just looking for sounds and synths.


I'll give feedback to others in a bit. I have to leave home now and I want to post this before I go.

Mr Who,


shits kinda raw, in particular as a WIP, I liked the bounce of the drums. Instrumentation was nice. I think maybe a dirtier synthy bass might be in order to give some grit to a softer tones.

but I fuck with this. happy to see you laying shit down.

Thanks Neek.

The reason it has that bass is that it's the bass in the template, lol. This was the starting off point, but I'll make more changes later. This also has an 8-bar bridge section where the melodies change, simply because I wanted to add a bridge to a rap beat. Still trying new things.

I'm not really a trap type of guy when i choose beats to rap over but i like this. Seems like a wiz khalifa type beat to me. The hats were placed Perfectly as well as the kicks. If you made that synth yourself you're nice with keyboard bro. The transitions were fuego as well. I fuck with your style of beats keep it up.

Thanks. I'm not a trap beat type of guy either. I like samples and live instruments (I play guitar and bass). I like synths and creating melodies on keyboards too though, so I figured I'd try updating my sound a bit.

Jesus man I can't believe you made this move

But as trap shit goes I do like it a lot, melodies in the verse are awesome...you didn't let your craft down with the snare...and for this I thank you. And I like the ambiance...it's on point. The strings on the hook didn't work for me...weren't bad but didn't seem like they built on/belonged with the verses (which were better for me)

. . . Now who said they fuckin' with me?
They just said that FUCKIN' with me

My beats are all over the place, stylistically. That said, my two recent beats are the first since like 2013, so I'm very slooooowly getting back to this. Anytime I make something, I'll put it up on Soundcloud and post it here though, so if you're interested in any, let me know.

Don't call me Jesus Man.
I have the melody for my next beat. Might go trap with it too, since it's fun to make. I wouldn't expect to hear anything before June though, lol.

Bro...I know I've been a total muthafukkah towards you but the past is the past.

Dude...I was rummaging thru old threads n lost sites when your name popped up on google. It was an old soundclick page and I swear...those old beats is still 🔥. I was too busy being a dick to realize just how talented you always were and still are. Just thought I'd put that out there bro.
Just understand that it was never personal...just friendly competition.

Lol, don't worry. I don't remember any of it, and would hold no grudge if I did remember. Glad you could enjoy some shit. I should find that SoundClick. I've had so many hard drive failures and lost a lot of the early stuff.

My favorite scale is the pentatonic scale because it's so universal, and adding one note gives you the blues scale. The pentatonic stale is in you whether you realize it or not:
