The beat was tight. How does one get a placement like that? By talking to Ghost’s manager/A&R? do you hit him up directly? do you send your demo to his record label? how do i get placements like that?

Hey Yakub, i cannot stop listening to this beat!!!!!! I have a question though, were the horns sampled from a record or are they from some vst?

I made the video to give Yakub some shine because when the track came out last week, there wasn’t a credit to any producer.

Yo Yakub – I love the ziptape man. I really like the mixing and was wondering if you might be able to help me with something…the whole tape has this really cool compressed sound – I’m trying to figureout how to put that on my mixes – so far no luck – could you share what kind of compressor was used or how I can put a similar kind of compressed quality on my shit? Thanks man

alkota November 15, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Big ups to Yakub. Good shit.

O-D November 16, 2010 at 12:40 am

Congrats Yakub! Getting to work with a legend at your age is a real blessing mane!
