Going Way Back: Rude Bastards - MOP (Produced by Kil)

Posted On Wednesday, August 24, 2016

One of the life lessons I live by is that I truly believe everything happens for a reason. And 7 years ago when I was banging MOP's new album "Foundation" on the way home from work and I heard MY beat for one of their songs "Rude Bastards" I had to put that belief into full swing. Long story short, I gave out a beat CD to MOP at a show in B'more back in '08, they ended up using it without crediting me, I posted what happened on okayplayer & kevinotingham and the story blew up and a day later I'm on the phone with Fame & Laze Laz working everything out. Now what does all of this have to do with my OG statement about everything happening for a reason? Well, when I was talking to Laze he said that I was getting more pub from getting jacked then I would've gotten if I got credited in the first place, and he was 100% right. From all of this hoopla, I connected with a RACK of producers from all over the world who also got jacked by artists (and was on some Jay Z ish "all of the hustlers are glad just to see one of us make it") and were happy to see me getting the cred for my beat. Plus getting jacked was the very thing that got me in the social media game, got me back in my production bag and taking making beats MUCH more serious and more importantly, it got me to start this very site. So all of that to say, no matter how bad things look, try to find the positive in whatever's going on cause trust me, everything does happen for a reason. Now after all of that, bang out to one of my fave beats that I've cooked up!
