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)
