    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? born in miami and raised in new york, and now I'm back living in miami. in between those stops, i've lived in a couple cities with very dope music scenes and i think that's helped shape my sound. i lived in london, england for a few - played some pro ball out there. i lived in minneapolis for a few - got family out there, and then lived in philly for a few. i started making beats in college around 2006, and basketball was always my first love but once i stopped playing, i filled that void with music. 2. How did you make use of the sample? i chopped up the first sample and pitched it down. i used a lot of elements from that track for the main sample chop, and i chopped up a couple stabs from the third sample and matched the key. they fit well together and i didn't really need to add much more sample wise. i tried to leave some space to let the track breathe. 3. how did you incorporate the rules? no crazy rules for this one..had to use at least two samples and had to use an acapella. i fux with acapellas heavy, i like to build beats around 16s or whatever the verses are, and it's helped me with my arrangement. probably half the beats i make ill try to find an acapella that fits so i can use it for that reason. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? i tried to keep the same energy and feel as the original heather b track, so i reached for some boom-bap-type drums, kick snare hi hats and some crashes. i banged the pads on the mp and fattened em up in the mix. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? i use logic for everything, and i use the mpd24 for all my drums and sample chops. i played the bassline on my keyboard and i also played a similar bassline with my 4 string bass, but i liked the feel of the synth bass more so i ran with that. i added a few scratches with my turntable. 6. Anything else you wanna add? shout out to kowalzki for the ill sample! its really dope to hear how different cats reimagine the same track. the thing stbb has helped me with the most is finishing. i used to take weeks and months trying to perfect a beat, but having 3, 4, 5 days to track it out, mix it and throw a weak attempt at mastering it has done amazing things for my workflow. peace and much respect!
