Does Metro Boomin Disagree With Timbaland's "No More Producers" Comment?

Photo via Metro Boomin's Instagram

.

Timbaland recently stated that producers don't exist anymore, and it just seems like people are just beat makers. Metro Boomin seems to have felt some kind of way about it. How he felt we aren't completely sure. Maybe he is just analyzing the statement. Maybe he disagrees with Timbo, and truly considers himself to be a producer. Nowadays, the beat patterns and drum selections all seem to be the same. It's like 20 records that sound the same at all times. It seems like no producers go left anymore when others are all going right. Timbaland stated,

"We don't have producers anymore. We have great programmers. Beats are not made how we used to make them anymore. I think they come as a package now. Beat making has changed. They don't even know how to make their own snares."

Timb also said,

"I feel like Metro Boomin will change eventually."

Well there certainly is a difference in being a beat maker and a producer. Which would you consider Metro Boomin to be? Does Timbaland have a point about there no longer being any producers?

!llmind Talks Beats And Music Technology (Video)



Team Back Pack hit one out the yard with this interview clip. Always love the work of !llmind; the wisdom that master craftsmen like Young Guru and himself share though. Priceless. Heck, how dope do your words have to be to have Joell Ortiz, in the room and barely speak, and your video is still a keeper?

You could create million-dollar sound music with less than $100. And I love that... It gives the kid... with a huge passion to create music .. it gives that kid that type of platform; to be able to express themselves in that way... But it also gives the f#cking knucklehead... doing it for the wrong reasons, giving that person the opportunity, too.

- !llmind

Yeah. Watch!

Exile plays Rhythm Roulette to win! Chopping and blending sounds from three randomly selected records... nah, how about Exile flipped one of the records in three different ways, managing to sample Fashawn and work his 'owwwww' into the track. Press play above, then shhhhh... genius at work!

Two-Hour Live Interview With Kanye West (Video)

  
Two-Hour Live Interview With Kanye West (Video)



People's misunderstanding of me is a misunderstanding of themselves.

- Kanye West

Okay, say what you will about Kanye (and you will, just the way it is), but the man is a phenomenon. And as such, we are almost equally blessed and stressed by what we know and think we know about him. And even when so-called 'craziness' comes to light related to dude, we're more likely to run toward it than away. But this low-key live interview interaction with Ye gives us another look at the man, dispelling some myths (letting others ride), talking in the way of a misunderstood legend. Think John Lennon back in the day when watching this (uh oh, might have to do some more Googling, ha).

Good watch. Right under two hours... wow! Full transcript available, too.

Let's start with this... I'm a creative genius. It's been proven.

Large Professor Takes His 'Rhythm Roulette' Challenge Seriously (Video)
Screenshot 2015-11-27 08.40.58

Large Pro... They caught up with me... We gone do this Rhythm Roulette...

Amazing that this epic episode has not happened sooner. Large Professor has done legendary work for legendary emcees and singers. And now that it has happened, Large Pro declares several times in the clip above that he is "not just gone make some ol' bullsh!t" - which he does NOT!

Yooo... if you are a spitter, you will WANT this beat for yourself!! Ha! You slept! Tragedy is already jumping the track. WOOOOOOO!

For this installment of Rhythm Roulette, we connected with Extra P, aka Large Professor. We took the legendary Queens producer to Human Head Records in Brooklyn, where he picked three random records to begin a game of Rhythm Roulette. He ended up grabbing an Instant Funk record, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes' Black and Blue album, and Shirley Scott's On A Clear Day. From there, Extra P began to go through the records and create some new heat from what he picked.

Shout out to Tragedy Khadafi for the cameo.









Is this a first? Has any RR competitor added put the finished beat to a 'test' with a real emcee like Khadafi? NICE!

I ain't come here to die. I came here to live... I need more...

- Diddy

I'm digging several songs off of this project. And the video above provides a behind-the-scenes look at the construction of Puff Daddy & The Family's album "MMM." Studio WORK! Inspirational snips and quips captured during Diddy mini-rants. Plenty, plenty studio guests. Diddy musing and laboring over the board. Driving every part of the creative process... Feel that 90s Bad Boy energy!

There it is. Music doing what it is supposed to do... The music entered his soul and spoke... made him a dancehall producer and bade him come to its home. Now it feels like his home. Watch the above vignette of producer Dre Skull traveling (once again) to Kingston; to immerse himself in the culture AND to link up with artist Popcaan to do work!

Aaaaah, back to Tuff Gong Studios. Others we've posted on have been there. See here.
