I've been making beats since 1994. Fell I'm love with hip hop way back in the early 80s. My weapon of choice is the ensoniq eps 16. It's a classic board with classic analog bass sounds..etc. to each his/her own. Doesn't matter what you use..just as long as it sounds good!!! That's My motto. Hard beats and dope lyrics is what I'm all about. That to me is hip hop in its purest form.
