Here is my submission for the sample beat battle. I didn't want to sample the traditional way of finding a loop so instead I took the El-P/Bomb Squad approach and took a bunch of sounds and slammed them together. I would break down where each sample kicks in but that would be to complicated so instead I decided just to list my sources.

I took the choir from http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/456630
The string hits and the Ryu hadouken came from here http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/456516
The piano comes from http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/475729
The vocals come from http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/459113
I sampled and tweaked the guitar from here http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/86480
The strings come from http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/472996
The bass comes from Nexus and the drums the sample we were given. Any other sounds come from somewhere in those list of samples

Not really a fan of the machine gun sound, but this is a really chill beat. Very smooth. Sounds really dumb to say this sounds overproduced since this is a sample battle, but you did damn well given the rules for the comp.

The machine guns did kind of disrupt the relaxing tone of the rest of the beat though.

I actually think the machine gun drums were good in and of themselves. The reason they got a bit annoying to me is cuz they were mixed so far in front of the rest of the sounds. It's more a mixing thing than the actual arrangement...I mean, all songs today have machine gun 808s.

machine gun beat. I like the vocal sample it works well and the harsher sounds contrast the piano. The drums kinda beat me over the head a bit too much in the middle but other than that its solid work.

Yea I know the more I listened to the overall beat the drums start to get tiring on the ears. But thanks.
