Skelly Productions – Declaration Of Independence II (album)


Shoutout to everybody who contributed to this piece. I am glad to have been part of this. Shoutout to MaddFrequency for putting this together. Shoutout to MaddFrequency again for ALWAYS being on the music. There are times when I’m just not there creatively and he will send some joints for my opinion and it ends up motivating me. Shoutout to CFC for keeping that element of the REAL DJ in Hip Hop alive. The intro is bananas. Shoutout to AlphaMega on the infinite amount of drum patterns that he is always putting out. Shoutout to the emcees on this joint. Taylor Bandit, Kay Flow, and Intellect have the most difficult job to do, which is doing the beats justice. It has to be a lot of pressure on yall to hear a dope beat and try to make it into a timeless track. Give Declaration of Independence II a listen and your support!

Prodigy Tribute (prod. by Mixtape Meeko)

Hip Hop lost one of the great ones today. I’m not trying to sound cliché, but Prodigy was one of the few artists in my permanent playlist. As a producer, he was at the top of my dream collaboration list. I have made plenty of beats picturing Prodigy laying verses to them. This is one of the beats I made with him in mind.

Kay Flow – Feature Presentation (Official Video)

Feature Presentation is one of my favorite tracks.  The beat itself is special because it is the first beat created from scratch with my cousin Big Tomb playing the live bass.  We have other collabs, but all of those were already made beats that he just played the bass over.  Kay Flow had just flew in and we were recording for a few days, then the cousin came through, and he played the bass over a few tracks we had done.  We then decided to make something together from scratch.  I chopped up a sample and put it together and he played the bass over it.  The next morning, while everybody was still sleep, I listened to the beat with fresh ears, and I just wasn’t feeling it.  The bass part was good, I just wasn’t feeling the way I used the sampled.  So, I chopped up a sample of the “unliked” beat and put some crazy drums over it.  When Flow and Tomb finally got to hear the beat, they had a genuine reaction (a good one) to the beat.  I knew Kay Flow was feeling it because he immediately recorded to it.  Here is some footage from the making of it: Making of Feature Presentation.  Anyways, enjoy the video and mark your calendars for June 30th when Bars Over Dope Beats is released.
