    The beat is the truth because it elicits a feeling from heads on more than 1 level.(hate it or love it) A beat ant got to have a high degree of technical difficulty in order to be on 1. Hell, I love me some El P and RJD2 on the boards (esp the old def jux ish) but fools like Yeezy got them beats that simply sound good. There are plenty of more technical beatsmiths that don’t elicit ish folk can feel. A similar phenomenon can be seen with mcs. Think of how many mcs were more technicaly sound than Tupac. Tupac elicited that certain kind of feeling that got people open.

    @yungplex I totally agree with your statements the thing is I just don’t think this particular beat is that inspired, creative or sounds that good…

  • Dirty Dee says:

    The “beat” would be okay with drums in it…it sounds like somethings missing..and Jay and Kanye suck!!

  • amanalone says:

    Regarding this beat, I would’ve liked more snares here and there, but that fact is: if we’re gonna keep pushing the envelope musically, we can’t be scared to change the format sometimes. Artists like Kanye and Jay Z need to keep trying new things (like simplifying a sample and not using snares) because they’ve made SO MUCH great music using the regular, standard formulas. Although in my opinion, both of them have experimented with great success in the past.

    At least that’s my opinion. Make sense?

    Amalone, I’d rather have them really experiment, i.e. talk about some real shit, and not this Benz this, private plane that. Leaving out a snare from a drum beat is not really trying “new things”.
