Hydra Beats – The Godfather Don Collection

Godfather Don was one of my favorite emcees AND producers of the 90’s. He definitely had his signature sound down pat. Sleighbells here and there, smooth, sometimes evil, jazz xylophone bell type samples, and ill as fuck horn riffs. To me, Ultramagnetic’s Four Horsemen album is where he really started to make his mark and master his style.
In the mid 90’s, every once in awhile, I would see these “Hydra Beats” records on the shelf.
Whenever I would see a Godfather Don one, I would scoop that joint right on up. I still never had them all and never would until these days of the internet. At least mp3 wise, but it’s the music that matters.
So, today, we’re gonna bring you the entire Godfather Don Hydra Beat collection.
Get to downloading and get you’re CD burners ready for this one. You’ll definitely want to knock these out the jeep, especially at night.

Editor’s Note: Hydra released another Godfather Don instrumental album in 2004, but I didn’t include it here because it doesn’t really fit in with the sound on these. Also, by Part 4 of this collection, you’ll notice his change of approach to beatmaking and the drop off in that real Don signature formula [in my opinion], but there’s still a few bangers on there.
