damn, i thought my mpc was shot. you definitely don’t need all that equipment to make dope joints. all i got in my lab is an mp, turntables, mixer, records(good ones) and a good ear. i don’t have protools, no monitors, never track beats (unless i lay something down with an artist) everything comes straight out of the mpc. good to see more established producers with minimal set ups too.

“A lot of people believe (Rosen) is a better prospect than the quarterbacks in this draft,” he said. “And so you get a chance to trade maybe a second round pick and get Josh Rosen and still use your first round picks on other players. I think that would be the route I would lean and look to go if I were one of these teams like the Dolphins, Redskins or Giants.”
