Beatmaker, engineer, rapper, whoever you are..... @OGBama recommended I come over here..... I've been making beats since 2010, but you could say I've been seriously pursuing this since last year. I've also picked up and, subsequently, decided to back off of engineering in that time too. I can't say that I've picked up a particular sound or style to shoot for yet. Right now, it's kinda whatever I hear in the sample or whatever I hear when I mess around on the keyboard/maschine pads. Far as influences go, I'm definitely a "boom-bap" guy. Premier, 9th Wonder, Dilla, Pete Rock, etc., etc, but i'm not so locked into it that I can't appreciate the newer stuff. Hope all is well with y'all. cR8!
