BeatSession 11|09|10

I thought my computer crashed AGAIN, thus the late post. You might remember back in early 2009, my PC crashed and I lost close to 300 beats. That time I lost most of the mp3 files and more importantly the master files. My brother fortunately had a bunch of my beats on his IPOD – but then he wiped it clean and sold it on craigslist. But anyways, miraculously my Macbook booted up earlier today. You would think that I learned my lesson and would have backed up my beats (you would think!). More on this later…

I’ve been trying to stray away from soul samples; My barber (@floc_kra_tes) has been urging us to sample 80’s songs for awhile now (and it will happen, i promise). But when I heard this sample by Jeannie Reynolds, I couldn’t resist. I can’t imagine this song being any more soulful; you can feel the desperation in her voice. I read somewhere that she suffered from a really bad case of bipolar disorder. In fact, they say that in this song, in particular, her ridiculous runs and heightened emotion was attributed to her disorder. In 1980, she committed suicide right after taking the lives of her two children. #MostDepressingPostEver

On a much MUCH lighter note, today was my annual review. It went well… how well? Let’s just say that my first investment will be a 4TB External Hard Drive #LessonLearned. peace, illa

    This week’s beat is by far one of my favorite beats I’ve made. I enjoyed making it.

    That story is really sad. I tried wiki’ing her and nothing popped up, which makes the story of her death even creepier.

    Everyone’s beat was straight fire. I personally liked C Bran’s joint. Killed it!

    Till next session


  4. C. Bran says:

    ‘Preciate the love PM!!! I also loved this sample and actually started out with 4 different songs. I narrowed it down to 2 and the other one didn’t come out as planned.

    I think this was a great session, 7 producers……all smashing this song. Fav’s are of course the PM jointz and the ending of Illa’s was crazy!!!

    Keep picking these sappy songs!!!!
