Using 808 in sampled beat help

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me out, I was wondering how producers add 808 patterns (changing the notes) to their beats such as this one? Do they have to follow a chord progression or do these producers just throw whatever sounds good? Can you just use C- A and back to C? Sorry I am new and just figured I’d ask. Thank you!

Every key has a set of notes that can be played and it'll sound good. Pick a key to produce a song in and then as long as those 808s are in that key it'll "make sense." Everything else is up to you as far as the musicality of the beat.

I use Serato sample because it tells you the key and then in reason use chords and scales on a nn19 in the key Serato gave me
