(AllHipHop News) Are you interested in seeing a producer’s creative process? Thanks to Mass Appeal‘s “Rhythm Roulette” series, production heads can watch acclaimed Hip Hop beatmakers go from an obscure sample to a hot track.
In the latest edition, Ramon “Illmind” Ibanga puts on a blindfold and randomly chooses three vinyls that he has to use to create a beat from scratch on the spot. He ultimately settles with a Patti LaBelle tune, loads it into Pro Tools, and works his magic.
Illmind is one of underground Hip Hop’s top producers. He has crafted beats for KRS-ONE, Skyzoo, Little Brother, Sean Price, and Jared Evan.
