Your Favorite 5 Producers:
Dr Dre, Kanye West, Araab Muzik, Pharrell Williams, Timberland
Favorite Beat They Produced:
Argh this one is too hard to choose.. Between my Top 5 producers they have made soooo many beats I LOVE
Why or What do you like about their skillz behind the boards?
I like their vision / creativity when it comes to making beats... They all seem to have found their own individual formula that works for them and gives them that signature sound. (Plus they all know how to get the drums knocking correctly)
How have they influenced or inspired you?
In many different ways... Dre & Kanye for the sample choices and the way they chop stuff up and make it sound unique / P. Williams & Timb masters for drums... they way they get things to bounce so I try to get that bounce (in the right track) / Araab for infusing that Trance / Techno into HipHop & beast on the MPC.. I actually got my first MPC cause I saw a YouTube vid of this guying tearing up the MPC
Which producer would you like to collabo with?
Is there a particular concept for the creativity of your beats/instrumentals?
Not really... I normally just sit there with a blank canvas and then the creative juices start flowing and shit starts to happen. If im doing a themed tape like 'Shocked Phuture' then I know its an electronic vibe tape so i'll go with that sound and so on but normally I just vibe as i go and see what gets created.
What is the inspiration behind your beats/instrumentals?
Everything and anything.. Family, My Son, My natural talent, Haters, Love, Pain... I could be watching a movie and hear the background track coming in and be like 'sampling that' lol. Basically anything can inspire me at any time.
