Watch DJ Khalil Make a Beat by Sampling Random Records

DJ Khalil

DJ Khalil, a staff producer at Aftermath Entertainment, has been featured on Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette series.

The series challenges producers to make a beat by sampling three randomly selected vinyl records. On this episode, the records were found at Adrian Younge’s Artform Studio in Los Angeles.

Born in Seattle and raised in Los Angeles, Khalil first made a name for himself as one-half the independent hip-hop duo, Self Scientific. In the mid-2000s, Dr. Dre signed him to Aftermath as a producer. Khalil has since produced Billboard Hot 100-charting singles like Eminem‘s “Survival,” Dr. Dre’s “Kush,” Aloe Blacc‘s “The Man,” Wale‘s “The Matrimony,” and Logic‘s “Black Spiderman.” Most recently, he produced A$AP Ferg‘s gritty anthem, “East Coast.”
