If you’ve been sleeping under a rock, it would make sense that you have no idea who DJ Khalil is. This guy have been making some of the craziest beats in the Hip-Hop game for the last few years. In this video with Hip Hop Official, Khalil takes us through the process that was implemented while making the Clipse track, “Kind of a Big Deal“. I love the fact that there are absolutely no samples in this track, don’t get me wrong I love sampling but I think it’s much cooler when producers chop live instrumentation. Everything in this video makes me have a greater appreciation for Kahlil’s talent, and this beat in general. (Side Note* I love how they play the beat for Evidence, “All Said & Done” in the video)

Here is Cymar’s take on the Brothers Thornton track “Kind of a Big Deal”. To be honest, I like this version more than the one that Clipse put out. Cymar is one of the dopest fire spitters that I’ve heard in quite some time. If you sleep on this guy you should be ashamed of yourself. You can also go over to MTVU.com and vote for Cymar’s video “King With 4 Wives” for the Best Freshmen Contest.
