“It’s been a minute, but we’re back at it, finally. After a few hiccups on my end, we’ve linked up with our buddy Alkota (of Drum Broker) as we continue on with our official Behind The Beat series.

So far, we’ve covered VA’s finest, Nottz, and A$AP Ferg producer Frankie P.

Today, we’re visiting our buddies Divided Souls Production as they take us into their studio and break down the science behind Havoc’s hard-as-nails “What I Rep” remix featuring Nutso & Sheek Louch.

In the beat breakdown video, they explain how they incorporated sounds from the Drum Broker library and how they created the dirty, grimey soundscape, with scratches by DJ Pain 1.”

Later, he breaks down track number 9, “Didn’t Wanna Do That.” Utilizing the sample “No Morira Jamas” (also used by Damian Marley on “It Was Written”), Frankie wanted to give it an overall New York sound with a trap type of bounce.
