Who's to say we aren't making albums and do this for the fun?
This group has some of most creative people i have ever seen in battles. That's why "most" of these beats are so different.
Of course you have to follow a few to find out.
On anther note, we are ripping off people by doing this.. but Kanye West doing Queen is allright with you?
what are u talking about?
i check almost all of them for the passed 10 years
thats why i was able to make a statement based on that info,
and i agree,
this board has some of the most creative ppl out there
which is why its sad to me that they are involved in such time wasting activities as making "beat battles"
with forced samples every fuckin week.
i mean dont you guys get sick of having rules and forced instructions on how to do your thing?
i for one will never read a 3 paragraphs of rules and instructions on how to make a "beat" for fun.
(let alone follow those rules),
i dont like rules of anykind, esp. injected into my creative process,
so maybe i will never understand the mindset of you guys that have been doing this STBB thing for years and years.
i guess im too old school, to each his own .
i like how you put yourself up there with kanye,
are u mad he flipped queen because of freddy mecury or just mad cuz its kanye that did it?
what i meant by ripping off artists is seems like whenever someone new beatmaker wise shows up on ST everyone automatically wants to know what hardware he is using, what samples he flipped , what snare kit he is using, where he got his artwork etc etc and then instantly everyone wants/trys to sound like that new guy, (example knwledge) he just dropped his album on ST, now everyone in here jockin his style.
i dont need to point fingers .
this has been goin on here ever since Madlib.
i guess what im trying to say is why does everyone on the STBB want to be like someone else?
what about secret processes? is nothing sacred anymore?
why "battle" ?
does this term itself not contradict the creative mindset you should be in to produce?
