This week we sampled another dope song by Jeannie Reynolds. My original intention was to flip the sample to tell a story about two kids who were murdered by their bipolar/suicidal mom (check the last post, it’ll make sense). The sample has a bunch of lyrics that could be chopped and rearranged to fit a story told from her two kids’ perspective. e.g. It says “ma” numerous times, “beat on me”, “love has two sides”, “love makes you crazy”, “out your mind”. Anyways, i opted not to — not only because it would be ridiculously depressing, but also because I don’t think it’d be fair to make assumptions about the inner-happenings of the Reynolds household. [But really, its because that version of my beat wasn’t working out right]. Plus the website where I found that backstory looked kind of suspect. All I know is that, backstory true or not, Jeannie is an amazing artist/singer.
Anyways, I’m expecting [and hoping] for several late submissions so be sure to check the site during the next few days. Once again thanks for listening and thanks for making last week’s session our most viewed session to date. And to the producers — DOPE session! peace, illa
NOTE: Two late submissions were added by Freshvilla (formerly TekTheIntern) and Chrizo. Chrizo is a new addition to the Weekly Beat Sessions but I’ve been following his music for a minute (check out his other music here). He represents Las Piñas, Philippines and he’s been doing big things over there in the Philippines. Check out both of these beats. DOPENESS!
