My Favorite Things

my favorite things

Beats are very important. obviously, i’m biased but for every jaw dropping verse i’ve heard, there is an equally mind blowing beat. whenever i’ve had to do press i often have been asked “who are your influences?” while this is the gayest question anyone could ask, it’s a valid enough question. my answer is never one name, cause in all honesty, there isn’t one producer that i’ve modeled myself after. the answer is more an era. luckily for me, this blog is pretty much all about that era. so, here’s two compilations of beats I love. you’ll noticed i’ve omitted many of the best producers. this is more cause i wouldn’t know where to begin with their vast catalogues. so no disrespect to primo, showbiz, diamond d, large professor and dr dre (who are all pretty much my idols) but i wanted to go in a little bit of a different direction with these mixes. enjoy.
