    This was the Beat Ive made all week before the Yearly Beat This Competition, of Nov. 2017, Ive submitted on ILL here, to hope for a spot to earn the entrance, of the battle. Only to, not qualifying the battle cut, to showcase a few arts of mine. Which, honestly I was a little disappointed with time being spent to and sacrificed days with missing a few days of a somewhat, important life events just to make music LOL. I wanted to make a "sampled like sound beat" from scratch from sound design, with out using any samples of any sort, instead of composing my own sounds chords mastering ect. With a blend of "HipHop/Trapish new/old school feel mashed in one. The Percussion's were BANGING and Hits so nice in a sound system set up sounding crispy, along with it i believe sounds apart from some trending styles. This one may not be everyone's taste. If you take time to listen, some will tell, that ive put some effort to experiment with. Seems like alot going on, but really, Ive tested a few acapellas, to test, and DAYUM! lol! Works well. Anyways, Criticize away! :D .. Here is "Jadakiss Type Beat"


    Here are some old stuff from 2006 to 09 that haven't had a play or view in years, thats needing some loving :) My old allies name, ("IceyKong)
    Cant believe how fast time fly's :O Will showcase many more of all types soon that needs some attention. Feel free to Criticize away!

    A couple 2006 Bangers I produced, when Lil Jon was trending at that time, who inspired me to try a few of his style beat. Not too shabby, hearing old product resurrected in over 10 years lol. Feed Back Away! :D

    Seems kind of confusing, and sounds being slightly clustered, Im not sure if the pre hook worked too well , as it seemed out of place when dropping back to the main verses. Although, that was a cool idea and thought to transition a different feeling that can be work slightly more, to give a smoother blend. The Pads sounds like the velocity fluctuates at the same hard note. Tone the Velocity with your main Pad Synth, on every other or note or so, that way it feels like a more realistic polished sound. That should make your beat stand out. Keep up the good work and keep it coming! Stay Blessed!

    YO! I appreciate that brother! I wouldnt know if its dope or not, since i never get real feedbacks, to know. Only a few or so would leave a thought. LOL, I figured it would entertain persons to keep those listeners, listening. So far, Its working somewhat of longer views and plays. Kind of corney though haha.

    I really dig those drums! A nice simple beat, and catchy. I like! Drums really made the track! Keep up the good work man

    @Baasta Beats really like the drums hit nice. Little sample is cool too. I also dug the piano and when you doubled up on the drums then the sample came in.

    The keys on this are pretty dope also did like the little bridge u had but the volume level became very low on that part.

    @ApeMade love it man the sample is dope the drum transitionings along with the hi hats are amazing. Also great transitioning on the keys too

    @Joe that's great beat.. but you need to work a little more on the rhytm and the master.. keep up the good work!

    Here is my latest beat, for which i want to find some dope MC to collaborate, so, if you know some one that can fit to this beat, contact me.


    P.S. This beat is just made, so i just mixed it, i still haven't started with mastering.. so tell me your opinions about what should i do in the mastering..

    Wouldnt let me post to youtube i guess because the vocal sample copy writes or some shit. Hope yall like it and it can play.

    @Kod4R love the drums and piano keep it maybe turn those hi hats up a bit. The police sound was ok i feel you could add more police siren samples chop it up a bit that would be pretty dope. Different sounds maybe some loud speaker type shit pull over pull over hands up hands up vocal sample.

    @ApeMade This is very creative and i'm really loving those drums. Way to keep the momentum going!!
    @Joe You also did a very good job with the drums and i'm really feeling the sample it really goes with the drums and visual.

    I love the beat... Again, you really make that rock influence work. However, in my opinion, that siren-esque sound (0:55,2:01) detracts from it. Maybe something a little more subtle, if anything at all. =)

    @Marc Duncan i agree with the intro not really being on point. But once the beat drops it’s nice. Just needs some tweaks.


    @ApeMade i couldn’t get it to play, maybe it’s just me.. idk


    @Baasta Beats that was FIRE. Perfect amount of space for lyrics and the visual is LIVE!


    @Joe yeah the rhythm needs some work but the foundation is definitely there..


    @Matt-D thats a nice beat. Seriously.. I’d like to hear it without the vocals as just an instrumental but as a track it’s on point.


    Here’s some of my last month ones. The Lemme Breathe is actually a track to a beat I made..kind of an on the spot thing with one super old verse and two new ones written on the spot..Although I’ve yet to mix or master it, only rough leveling.

    @Marc Duncan I didn't like the beginning at first but as soon as the drums drop was sauce...Dope

    @Joe I honestly say this is one of the best beat I heard on here. This is superb and dope as hell. I can most def smoke to this..

    @Kod4R You need to find a MC for this beat. It has that grimey feel...

    @Matt-D Damn man...I see you doing the remix game lately. This one is dope as hell my dude. Gambino fits it perfect too...Good Job

    @HouseOfBeets Between all of your beats...I like "Lemme Breathe" the best. The piano sounds saucey....Me likes

    I just did this one today, its not fully mixed yet but I'll post it anyway:


    And shoutout to Matt-D for the lovely remix. This is one of my remixes I did a while back:
