After 4 months of procrastination I’ve finally finished my first beat tape/album. I’ve heard quite a few from other beatmakers and have always wanted to do my own. So I said F it and did. But it wasnt actually until I heard 9th Wonders beat tape. Obviously he’s a beast on the beats, so when I heard it I was instantly motivated. So I got to work.
Initially, I ended up with about an hour long of beats but then had to step back and look at it from the outside. I figured, well I’m not very well known as a beatmaker (yet) so I should probably cut it in half and make it short and sweet. So the final product is a 30 minute beat tape of 30 beats. Various types dating from 2007-2009 and even a few from 2010. Some have been rapped on some haven’t. Now go get yourself a cold one and enjoy.
Shouts to Purehip-hop.blogspot for putting me up on this upcoming project from Ayatollah. In addition to the other beat albums he already dropped this year, he’s gonna be dropping some 3 discs full of intrumentals. Cant wait to hear this assortment of beats! 69 in total all from the Mpc 60. Dropping Aug. 10th! Don’t sleep.
“Reefer” is from Ayatollah’s new album “Cocoon,” available on iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital retailers on July 20, 2010. Directed by Yoni Arava.
