Mass Appeal has returned with a new episode of Rhythm Roulette, this time calling on Roc Nation producer Jahlil Beats.
The series challenges producers to make a beat by sampling three random records, chosen from a record store while blindfolded.
A native of Pennsylvania, Jahlil is best known for producing street anthems like Meek Mill’s “Ima Boss” and Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N#gga.” He has also worked with superstars like Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Diddy, and Rick Ross.
Watch above to see Jahlil make a track with LPs that he picked up at Repo Records, one of Philadelphia’s oldest vinyl stores.
As Bobby Shmurda’s street anthem “Hot N#gga” gains momentum around the US, the track’s producer Jahlil Beats has taken to YouTube to explain how he connected with the Brooklyn rapper and break down how the track was produced. The Roc Nation producer also discusses how the beat was intended for Lloyd Banks in 2012 but the Queens rapper declined to buy it.
