C Plus linked up with the legendary producer Ski Beatz for this 5-track EP with LRG cosigning the collab.
We recently linked up with legendary producer Ski Beatz and Sacramento rapper C Plus for a 5-song EP called The Extra Sessions that sees the duo continuing to paint a picture with narrative raps that fit Ski’s production history. Recorded in just a 48-hour time frame, Ski has returned to a style of production reminiscent of his work on Reasonable Doubt, and re-teams him with C Plus who he worked with on 24Hr Karate School Presents Twilight. The Extra Sessions is a pre-release to a full album that will be dropping in the near future. Download the entire project after the jump.
The Dopehouse has partnered with HipHopDrumSamples.com to give away some limited edition Ski Beatz Karate School drum kits/flash drives. The 16GB Akai MPC2000XL Flash Drive (shown after the jump) comes loaded with both Ski Beatz’s Karate School: Drums For Ninjas as well as !llmind’s Blap Kit Vol.3.
Known as one of the most prolific Hip-Hop producers over the last 20 years, Ski Beatz has crafted classics for Jay-Z, AZ, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, Camp Lo, Curren$y, Talib, Murs, & many more. The Karate School Drum Kit features drum samples designed and hand picked from Ski Beatz personal drum stash.
To honor Ski’s chopping skills on the E-Mu SP-1200, we spent hours re-sampling the kit through our E-Mu SP-1200 to create a 12-Bit (Dirty) version for vintage analog flavor & grit. Forget the vintage mode button, these drums have authentic 12-Bit flavor that your Maschine or MPC Renaissance can’t replicate.
All you’ve got to do is hit the jump and fill out the included widget. Good luck!
