    im not humble, im actually realistic
    the beat wasnt made by me, its been made by a beatmaker i know, i told him where to put in breaks in the beat etc. and later mixed the acapella on it, so i dont deserve all the credits here
    he might be using fl studio or reason for beatmaking, im using reaper for remixing
    but generally with mixing, u can use kinda every other program aswell,the result should be the same ...

    Well okay that's a little interesting. Then I have to say the way you came together is dope. It's not about the parts- it's about that final song mix. If you have the ideas and know how to get it to sound the way it should then together you guys are dope.

    As a producer myself, I could never get that angle working. Someone would always say "no it should be like this" then "no no go back; it should be like that" etc etc cause they never knew what it is they wanted anyway.

    Haven't heard of situation like yours in a while but results are dope so keep it up.

    well thats the regular situation, in this mix just 2 guys came together
    in real life plenty of guys come together
    the songwriters, the producers, the mixers, the guys that master the tracks, shit i dunno, but i do know theres plenty of people working on 1 track

    the way we come together isnt really interesting or special imo, its just regular
    theres always atleast 1 artist who does the singing, atleast 1 guy who produces the beat and atleast 1 guy who mixes the track down, minimum

    for this track, well he posted the beat on a forum, sometimes its like that: i hear a beat and i got an acapella in my head that fits the beat
    im not gonna lie, this time it wasnt like that, so what ive done is, ive checked the bpm of his beat, and then i been checking what pellas i got with similar bpm that actually could fit, so i finally tried like 5 acapellas and the when i b on tha mic pella was the one i liked most (theres also an a tribe called quest mix i made with the same beat, ill maybe post it here one day)
    so yeah it fitted well, especially the hook fitted well imo
    so i made a first draft mix, you know in the beat theres differences in the hook and in the verses, so i had to loop the beat so everything was fine, then i rendered the draft mix, but still it wasnt perfect, you know when its a plain looped beat it might get boring, not directly boring but its always better to put in some breaks (eg. leave kicks and drums away etc.)
    so i sent him the draft remix and told him to look up the breaks in the original when i b on tha mic track and put similar breaks into his beat, thats what he's been doing, he sent me a wav file of the finished beat, 1 break he put in i didnt like much so i had to fix it myself but other than that he did a really great job, was a pleasure working with him, because thats not the regular base
    i been working with other producers aswell, and i told them: put a break here, remove a drum here, the verse needs to be 4 bars longer, etc. etc.
    still it doesnt always work fine, sometimes its hard to communicate and express yoursel over the internet

    but at this mix everything was fine, i told him to put in the breaks where they belong, he done that, perfect

    so i know exactly what your talking about with that "no no go back" i been using these words aswell, i do know what i want but its hard to communicate over the internet, quite much misunderstandings

    one reason why it actually works with rakim is actually the drums, they are made by dj premier, when i b on tha mic was produced by dj premier so it fits
    what i wanna say is: if you wanna mix a beat by swizz beatz for example, its most likely a jay-z acapella will fit, that actually belongs to a swizz beatz production (as long as the bpm fits)
    one guy over the internet said about this mix that actually kinda every 90s rapper would sound good over it
    and hes kinda right, its an easy beat with oldschool vibe that leaves much space for the rapper

    so overall what u need is an ear for a good beat and an ear for what artist could fit ...
    thx for ur feedback once again, nice conversation

    Really that's what makes a "producer". Someone who has the idea for the completed song and an idea of how to put it all together to get it to sound the way it's supposed to [salable]. You can be a phenomenal producer without ever touching beat making software... I think where a lot of beat makers (like me) get stuck is that we know how to make a beat- but don't know how to make a full "track/song/album/whatever".

    You're right about a lot and it was interesting to hear your process. Keep up the good work ^^

    This is fire man. Definitely sounds like a Primo style beat. What did you use to make this? I'm guessing MPC, but who knows.

    I wanna get this 'pella. I love that Rakim song from the beginning of Juice. The beat on that song is ridiculous.

    Also, real nice job sync-ing this up with the Video. Definitely took some effort to track down the video and link it all up for us. Can't wait to check out your other beats on here. Check out my remixes when I post them up.

    thx for the feedback man, appreciate it
    the reason why it sounds like a primo beat is because the drums are from primo

    i'm not the only one who has be credited here, this mix is a collaboration with a beatmaker named ferhan-c
    a mpc wasn't used here, its all made with computer programs
    if you wanna get more info about the collabo you should read my post combo with option_1 in this thread

    here's a dl link for the pella:
    Download Rakim When Tha Mic acapella diy goodwillprojects mp3
    found it on -----------.co.uk, you can find the most pellas on there

    i love juice aswell, know the ledge is insane yeah, i mixed 2pac's holla if ya hear me on it in 2009, i can upload it in this forum in a few days

    the video didn't took much effort, it was made in like 10 mins
    i been checking your remix, and also left feedback, it's nice man
    i'm a pac fan aswell, i'm even on a tupacforum with more than 4000 posts ;)

    to come back to the effort put into videos, when i be on the mic kinda was a joke and was done within a few minutes
    i mixed 2pacs words of wisdome on michael jackson's jam and me and 2 other guys made a video on it, we been spending hours on it, but imo the result is all worth it,
    you can watch it here:

    super, great beat
    especially the fact that nothing happens most of the time
    The music is in between the notes
