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.

I was gonna explain this album to ya’ll but then I realized… El Rob already did.
“im no journalist so im just gonna dive right in and beat the cat with this one. DBG (ine, e.c., big sammy). well theres really no ryhme or reason it just makes sense. by 2001,2002 we (ine) had a few projects and a hand full of live shows under our belt and e.c. and scams were there to soak everything up, i know were nobodys, but when it came down to making music our attitude was and has always been the exact opposite. i remember sessions at jakes crib with his little brother nick where it felt more like a party than an actual recording session but we’d knock out 3 to 4 cuts a night. looking back those for me were some of the bestest (yes, bestest), most productive and livest sessions i’ve been apart of. alright now lets fast forward to 2005,2006 by this time we’d completed several more projects, more shows. meanwhile scams and e where adding to there resume, scams with three full length mixtapes, numerous shows and his own radio show “hip hop truck stop” on kdvs 90.3 fm. my little big brother e since has put out two full length albums, full production on both of anxious’ albums, full production of solraks first release and half of his latest, not to mention his apartment in woodland was the spot, numerous cats recorded there. i told jake that there was a vibe in there that sparked instant creativity, for me at least. these sessions reminded me of the old ones its almost like coming full circle. that is why pac div makes sense. i will approach this DBG venture just like i have approached every project i have ever been a part of and not force anything just let it be. i will add to it and let it sit to ferment for awhile and when it is finished it will be the best product i’ll ever been apart of.”

So from this point on Mons, myself and ElRob will be serving ya’ll nothing but informative and useless info.
