Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox On MPC’s, Modules

Bryan-Michael Cox, Jermaine Dupri, and Anthony Hamilton head into the studio for a little record chopping and synth action.

There’s a generational battle taking place in the recording studio though. In the midst of creating at a track for Anthony Hamilton, the producers struggle through a number of technical issues, highlight heat problems with the Akai MPC3000, and debate the merits of module racks vs software plugins.

If you want to hear the straight original sample, head over to the downloads section and grab a copy of the now ancient mixes 100 Breaks or 100 Breaks Vol 2: Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

  1. JD can’t sample that after Mobb Deep already murdered that. That sample can’t be sampled again unless it’s a different part of the sample at least.

  2. Jermaine be doing his thang…Im just happy to see a big time producer such as his self getting back into the sampling and what not. Them “hunt and peck” keyboard and 808 beats get on my nerves.

  3. JD is wack as they come. he blocked me on youtube cause i said one of his beats were wack. hes a sucka and always has been. nobody is looking for JD on the beat tip. nobody goes “OH I WANNA BE JUST AS GOOD AS JD ON THE BEATS” lmao

    • Put your resume up against his…..enough said. Fuckin internet bum. Sitting behind your computer mad cause he made it and you havent amounted to shit. Your wack and nobody is looking for you ON ANY TIP! Well maybe some gay dude who wants you on the tip of his d*ck.

  4. The beats came out good but Arrested Development used the first one in 1992 and Mobb Depp used the second one in like what 1998 right? Sell them records! Hamilton sounded dope over that sample though.

  5. Just because a sample was ripped & slaughtered by other artist doesn’t mean it can’t be recycled.Most young cats that “don’t make beats,tracks” never heard it before you’d be surprised. Hell I’d love to be in his position, he’s so paid from back in the day who needs to stay relevant, he’s not tucked in the closet some where collecting dust, he still plays the club as a DJ. I’m glad to see all that beautiful hardware & at least it get’s used, His name still ring bells in the music world.

  6. MOBB DEEP -leave that shit alone muthafuckas!!!!!
    These guys are obviously super talented, and of course recycling samples is a part of hip hop, but you gotta have a sense for when something is off limits, especially when you use the loop the same fucking way and dont even chop it creatively. BOO to this shit.

  7. No disrespect to JD but this is incredibly f’d up! As a hip hop producer yes I love going to my favorite record store, diggin through crate after crate, finding a few golden tickets, going back to the studio to get my chop suey on, and creating something completely original that sounds NOTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL TRACK I SAMPLED FROM…. The sample is the exact same chop from one of my favorite Mobb Deep songs! Anthony and Bryan, how could you sit there and watch that happen???

  8. i’m sure everybody have noticed that in commercial urban music samples usually originate from hit records of the past, this has always been the case with Puffy, and it has a good reason, if you’re aiming at creating a hit, base it on another hit, it’s anti-creative, but who said commercial urban music overindulge in creativity?

    JD being a super commercial producer (not super producer LOL) is in the same mind, he takes what has stood the test of time and is very familiar to a wide audience to catch their ear immediately
    i suspect if they put this joint on the Anthony’s album it’ll be a single
