I remember it was the summer of '98 and I was 11 years old. The Ruff Ryder vol 1 was hot on the block and I first heard DMX's "Some X Shit" That was the beat that got me into producing. That same day I made my first beat with the old school record,pause,rewind method as i was going through all my CD's at the time for breaks to loop. With all the talent in this forum, I'm curious to know how did you get into beats???
