    About Pro Rap Beats

    I've been making & producing music since I was about 13 years old. My first console was a Tascam 424 MKII which was a tape deck with an EQ on each channel. I used to spend hours getting a 3 minute guitar take down then another 5 hours doing the drums, bass, etc. There was no looping or WAV file you could copy paste or edit so if you made a mistake, I had to do the whole take over again.

    I started playing guitar when I was 13 years old and used to watch this incredible guitarist named Steve Wyreman play cover songs at a local church with his band. His style was this perfect blend of blues, funk, and jazz. He could play literally anything and he always played with this huge smile; his love for music was like nothing I'd ever seen. I was lucky enough to take lessons from him before he got his break and has began working with Rihanna, Nas, Common, J. Cole, Big Sean... the list goes on. He used to turn on rap beats and songs by the Roots, Biggie, Nas, etc. and we'd take turns soloing and jamming over these hip hop songs. He'd show me all sorts of chord inversions, guitar licks, and ways to accompany hip hop with the guitar and I loved the way it sounded weaving in out of the rhythmic vocal patterns.

     

     I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. So much good music comes from the Bay: Mac Dre, Andre Nickatina, E-40, B-Legit, Hieroglyphics, Too Short, Zion-I, Crown City Rockers... the list goes on. The rap instrumentals under the music are raw and use a lot of live instruments, giving them a unique sound. I grew up going to all sorts of concerts; there was so much opportunity to see bands, musicians, and hip hop artists no one has ever heard of. One of my favorite non-hip hop guys is a Bay Area native named Charlie Hunter. He plays an 8 string guitar- the top 3 strings are bass strings and the bottom 5 are guitar strings. He plugs into a guitar amp and a bass amp simultaneously and plays this funky jazz style of bass and guitar at the same time. Another one of my favorites is Crown City Rockers. They're like Oakland's version of the roots. I saw them play live with Zion-I and it blew my mind. To me nothing is better than Hip Hop with live instruments.
