Every hip hop beat needs swing
Real hip hop heads always love the famous MPC swing in a hip hop beat. Actually, many rappers don’t even know what “swing” is, even less what an MPC swing is and how it is different. But beatmakers do: since the beginning, starting from the MPC 60 and 60 II, beatmakers are giving to their drums a great feel and vibe in order to make rappers move their heads.
An other machine that had it’s own swing and color was the SP 1200. Back in the days these machines were used for every single beat: so many classics came out from those workstations.

In this beat, I tried to do my best emulatin a slow and steady sp1200 swing in Logic. I sampled a record but sequenced in Logic, which is also what I used in order to mix and master the hip hop beat, which is for sale on our Rap Beats page.
