Pete Rock on the MPC.

Dates back from maybe the 90s, but theres a solid talk about different MPCs and why he isn't thinking about upgrading (he used his for a long time) and some really cool snippets of complete songs he made in his MPC while solo tracking em.

He talks a little (very basic) on how he composes within the MPC.

Really cool video.

AND Pete Rock and Dj Premier on a talkabout everything MPC, including the new models, dated 2012, from the AKAI minute series.

^ Jon Phonics has been dope for a long time. Funny that he chopped the same loop that I used years ago as a young lad.

Det var toppen! Like that ****. Hello from Helsinki :)

BTW, I know this kind of off-topic, and I dont mean this in any negative way, really, but IMHO people who do dope **** like you do probably don't benefit from calling it "Kanye type beat" – in my 2c opinion, you're downplaying your own worth a little bit by doing that. I know that may be good for some views and popularity, but still – rock that "Riff type beat" all proud :)
