  1. I enjoyed this one. I love the process of making beats, from picking out records, to eqing each individual drum sound to get that phatness. I love watching others do the same. Its like watching Bob Ross choose and mix his colors right before he paints a portrait. I enjoy watching the whole process. Sometimes I don’t even care how the person’s beat turns out. Its the artform as hole that gets me inspired. Thanks Semantic.

  2. Nice! I would agree that the process of beatmaking is boring, however not the film. What can I say? I love seeing the chop on the green LCD display of an MP.


  3. I don`t give a fuck waht anyone has to say. I liked this one and I liked the last one(not just as much). It`s just great to see somebody,anybody attempt to make a understanding out of something so many don`t.

  4. I thought the video was very well done. Beats (pun intended) the hell out of the typical beat making youtube vids with a webcam.

  5. I like the video, and the guitar sample is cool (especially for Herb Alpert). But the drum programming (and the choice of sounds) puts me to sleep. And that bassline sounds like an afterthought.

  6. Good quality film but indeed a bit boring and the beat wasnt that hard also!! dont care what anybody says but just listen to your favorite producers, their beats just harder!!! PUT IN MORE WORK GET SOME NEW KICKS AND SNARES .

  7. Yo..I appreciate the video but can you please make the beat already!
    You tried to get to artsy with the video homie. Shit was putting me to sleep

  8. INspirational, stp hating, we all have our days, the beats was real nice at the end, its just depicting a session, its all about being inside his head, it aint no ice just the stash and a brain. real hip hop ,, classic.. peace

  9. vid was aight. however, the sample felt like it needs one more note. i like that delinquent habits joint though.
