how to make hip hop


So I find these videos pretty helpful, I figured I'd put them all in a playlist so there's more information in one spot rather than having to look it all up separately.


I was able to make this (with some help) with stuff I learned off of these videos.

A couple of tips on finding samples,

Movie soundtracks from the 60s-70s are usually pretty good for finding loops, I've had luck with twilight zone, dirty harry, and fist of fury. Any flick with a jazzy soundtrack should work. And you can also take vocal snippets, from movies or even just YouTube videos, to give your beat a little more meaning.

(If anyone has any more useful information, feel free to share below)

Thanks for sharing, I didn't

Thanks for sharing, I didn't know Lord Finesse was also a producer.  Return of The Funky Man was the bomb when I bought it on cassette 25+ years ago lol.

I found this channel really interesting since it covers some of my old favorites like Dwyck, Punks Jump up to get Beat Down, and Mind Playing Tricks....

Yeah lord finesse is pretty

Yeah lord finesse is pretty dope, I'm stuck on Lewis Parker. I wish someone would break down his beats, but like no one knows who he is so I don't see it happening.
