GBI - My First Hip Hop Beat

Author Comments

I've never tried making a beat before...


Johnny Cash hip hop?

Interesting fusion of elements here.

Okay, now let me start this off with a little disclaimer:

I know pretty close to jack shit about rap/hip-hop. It's not really something I'm a fan of.

However, this seems to have pretty good production values insofar as mastering goes, and the levels are pretty nice, and it's calm, and I like it.

There's just one MAJOR problem though- it's too short. You really don't have any long enough pieces written to show your actual ability as far as music composition goes, I mean sure, these are nice loops, but trying to come up with some baseline of your skill to go off of is damned impossible to do from three loops.


That's all I ask.

that pretty good.
Hit me up nd maybe we can talk bizness about u producing a trak or two on my album

Wow, a Cash hip hop beat (no pun intended)

I'm liking it, be awesome if it were longer. Great first beat

Hey, I have a fantastic idea...

If you are up for it.
I kinda do hip hop parodies.
You should finish this, or extend it. We could do a "rap" duet, of course starting off...with "I hurt myself today"....and then go on to make fun of "bling" rappers. In that style.
You game?

IF not thats cool. Good Idea using that song to hip hop over. Nice sound on your gutiar too.

4.05 / 5.00 (+ 0.17)


I can't say it's any worse that what some actual hip-hop producers have created.

For me though I'm more of a fan of using real drums and loops for percussion in hip-hop. It just sounds more, thingymabob.
As far as the kick and the snare go, I can't complain, I'm not feeling that hat, though, maybe something a bit more sizzly with the high end EQ'd.

Maybe if you cut up the guitar a bit to make it sound less like it was recorded in one go you could get some good effects. But that's just my preference.
