This beat tape was put together in two weeks (1/15/16 - 1/30/16).

Idea/background: BDTB launched a J Dilla sample flip contest for a J Dilla tribute show that Old Soul Entertainment is throwing this February (2/12/16). For the contest, BDTB shared 14 samples that Dilla used throughout his career, and producers/beat makers were challenged to flip one of the samples for a future compilation.

It just so happened that I've been experimenting with Ableton effects and sounds, and this was a good way to combine celebrating Dilla while trying some new things out. Instead of making one beat, I made 10.

I included the samples I used below, and there's also a bonus track, which is a remix of a J Dilla verse, that's only available if you download the project.

This project is free to listen to, but it's not free to rap on. "Without that loot, these instrumentals stay instrumental."
