THANKS SEMANTIC. OK THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRODUCER AND A BEATMAKER. WELL I DON’T THINK THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. PHARELL IS A BEATMAKER AT HEART OR AT LEAST HE STARTED OUT AS ONE. MOST UP AND COMING PRODUCERS SUBMIT BEATS TO MUSICPLACEMENTS.COM AND WHEREVER EALSE THEY CAN GET IN WHERE THEY FIT IN ‘ THEN THEY GET A PHONECALL LIKE YO WE ARE USING YOUR BEAT AND I ASSUME YOU SIGN A FEW PAPERS AND THATS IT.THE ONES WHO ARE ON ANOTHER LEVEL USUALLY HAVE AN ENGINEER THAT DOES ALL THE LEGWORK ‘ MASTERING AND MIXING AND SOMETIMES TRACKS THE VOCALS. THAT LEAVES ONLY UNDER ACHIEVED PRODUCERS LIKE ME WHO TRIES TO PIECE SOMETHING TOGETHER THE BEST HE CAN BY HIMSELF lol I HEAR DJ PREMIER SAYING HE DOES THE WHOLE PROCESS HIMSELF. I CAN BELIEVE THAT. WHO EALSE ON A MAJOR LEVEL I REALLY DON’T KNOW. I THINK ITS A GOOD IDEA FOR ANY UP AND COMING PRODUCERS TO GET INTO MASTERING YOUR OWN BEATS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DVD TO ALL MY POLITICAL CONNECTS .I COPPED THIS DVD AND IT MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR ME .

boi-1-da is so sick with it. I really feel his shit fareal, this shit gives me more motivation to keep goin cuz this music biz is hard especially if ur comin from uncharted land. Hes from Toronto, my camp, The Back Row is from the DMV (DC,MD,VA) so I know how hard it is to get it goin but if he can do it we all can eat. (no shots)
