Meaty Ogre is one of my favorite producers, i do believe i got all his records. His beats is super dusty and drums is banging, ill take a Meaty beat over a Kanye beat, thats Chi-town to me. He is making his return to Hawaii and sharing the stage with Oliver Twist, Shitzr, and Roger Bong. Live visuals from the fam, Hypo! Don’t Sleep.

Here is a glimpse into lives of Magic Atlas, Jim Hurdle, and Wish. I wish i could of took more photos, i was concentrating on the intriguing stories and explanations that the producers were dishing us. I know you will feel me once the videos drop.

This part of BR is the hardest part next to judging who will win. The Sample pack which you have to make beats using only certain albums and remix Hip-hop tracks using the acapellas. I believe you get more creative when you have less to work with, like when producers only had a SP1200 and now kids got 100000 Gigs of sound but their beat still sound like tin cans and lazers, say what!!! Nah, I picked some classic diggers records and dope acapellas. So if you a producer feel free to DL the pack and get loose, send it to me via email and ill post it up. If you just a Music lover, DL the pack you can get those 2 awesome albums free. So NATE. L, ATLAS, JIM HURDLE, MR.CARMACK, WISH, & TSRK get to work! Don’t Sleep.
