Greyboy (selections from Mastered the Art, 2001)

Greyboy's had some nice cuts over the years, but I always looked at him more as an acid-jazz-type producer than hip-hop; 2001's Mastered the Art changed my mind (although he hasn't released much since then to top it). He flexes his skills on the MPC in variety of instrumentals (and cuts with MCs Main Flow and Muddie - "Dealing with the Archives" was one of my favorites beats in '01), and for what he lays down on this album, shit was mad slept-on. "Bath Music" made it onto a few instrumental comps, but "Smokescreen" is a definite gem. I think you risk all your credibility by slapping a title like "Mastered the Art" on your album, but this was not an exercise in talking shit...

Duval Clear.

Duval Clear, also known as Masta Ace. I rate his catalog up there with late 80s, early 90s legends like Rakim, KRS-One, Kool G, and BDK. He's a damn good contender for my top 5, and consequently, has been backed by a range of legendary producers from Marley Marl to 9th Wonder. These are all the Masta Ace instrumentals I could find. If I'm missing any, let me know and I'll look around. I had to look through the producers in my iTunes library to find all of the instrumentals I could. So I'm sure I missed some that I have. If you have any that aren't here, upload 'em. This collection has producers Marley Marl, Masta Ace, Khrysis, 9th Wonder, Domingo (who sampled The Simpsons theme song for "Spread it Out"), The Bluez Brothers (from Ready to Die fame), and more. Njoi

Give your props to my man Illusion (visit his MySpace at He inspired me to drop this one. Look out for him to help fill in the gaps of this collection in the C-Box.

It's Been A While

Okay...I've got Joe Budden's "Dear Diary" for everyone to listen to...
and since I'm pretty sure these are among the most requested beats in the world (not sure why) we've got some Lupe.
If these are loops, I apologize. I grabbed these from somewhere (don't remember exactly), and I suck at telling if it's a loop or the real thing...the people who do the loops are like magicians.

Atmosphere Instrumentals

Free Image Hosting at

So, I was listening to some of the beats here and I was wondering why Ant (dude on the left) never comes up when mentioning dope producers. Usually when I hear stuff about Atmosphere, it's mostly hate on McNulty. So I upped some instrumentals to show why I enjoy dude's music.

If it were up to me, this would be just an Ant post with more Felt 2 and Brother Ali beats, but they don't have full instro LPs, so here we are.

S.U.B. - EP (2007)

Blazay (MySpace here) sent me this instrumental EP...S.U.B. is a production crew based in Toronto, and this is an EP of their work, mostly interlude-length (i.e., a minute or two). A lot of tight shit on here, definitely give it a listen.

S.U.B. - "EP"

Blazay also has a blog - tapes.records.dub - with a few ill dub albums for download.

Exactly what you think...instrumentals built from the themes and vocal samples from:
Ducktales, He-Man, Rocky & Bulwinkle, Captain Planet, Thundercats, Smurfs, Ren & Stimpy, Inspector Gadget, Underdog, Transformers, and more. I'd forgotten how dope that Underdog theme was...

Enjoy, and check out the man's new blog, One Funk Blog.

A Grab Bag Of GOODS... Get ALL of these.

Word People... Back again with another Massive drop of Shit that I haven't seen too many other places... Tryin my best to keep it Fresh. Alright, I'm going to start things off with this fool "Phox". SUPER, Super good stuff here, another producer coming from Hungary, that little spot is Growing in my Book as a Plethora of Power Producers... Whoever left the link for this in the C-Box a few days ago, THANK YOU, I've had this Disc on loop since then. This Dude is DOPE, Trust Me, get this Disc... The Box has really been helpin with gettin' all the Random shit out that I normally wouldn't have found, so Thanks to all of you for droppin links... It would be nice to have a Box without all of the Spam, so I hope those of you reading this will calm things down with that, but I expect the Immaturity to continue, so whatever, keep doing ya thing if you don't have anything else better to do... Alright, onto the Music:

**OH, by the way, any link that says "Right Click & Save As" is a Link that is already uploaded to a Server, so no wait times or redirections to other Sites, just a Quick Save As Download... The only thing is some of them are Saved as .Txt Files, so when it's done Downloading, just delete the ".Txt" part so it becomes a .Rar, then it should open up fine...

Phox - Liquid Forms << Right Click & "Save As"

Word... Next up we got this dude "Guts" I guess he was Born in France, but now lives in Spain. I didn't know what to think upon seeing the Cover for the Album, looked like it might be some Zany Shit. But it's the exact opposite of that, Super Bangin' and Smooth. Sounds like a few producers out there, but has enough unique flavor to put him on his own... Check it out, you won't regret the Download.

Guts - Le Bienhereux << Right Click & "Save As"

Cool... Jones Orchestra up next. Hopefully y'all peeped the Link that Boogie left in the Box a bit back for those 2 Beats from the Orchestra to get a Feel for what they're all about. It's how I got turned onto 'em. From Chicago, with the classic Chi sound, only with a little more time put in. More well rounded than any Molemen shit in my opinion... This is a Collection of Tracks from their first Two Releases, some Good Shit in here:

The Jones Orchestra - Best Of

Alright, some more Bonobo comin up next. After Espionage dropped that Disc from the man a while back, I had to get more... So I tracked down ALL of his Shit. The man is a DOPE Producer, has some real diverse tracks, so this is another collection of Really Good Shit from the rest of his albums. Check the track "Recurring" because it might be a some Real Dope Shit. Don't pass this up, get it...

Bonobo - Best Of

More Shit. It ain't over yet... I got that Pablie Disc I was askin about a While back. It's Short, only a 5 Track EP, but it gives you enough to know that this guy has some Shit figured out. Also coming out of Spain I believe, he has a Nice Laid Back Sound. Get it.

Pablie - Prelude To Anything Exactly Specific << Right Click & "Save As"

Gettin there... I thought I'd get up that "Wal-Martian" disc I saw mentioned in the Box. I knew nothing of the dude then, and I know nothing now, except for the Fact that he makes dope music filled with Mass amounts of obscure Vocal Samples... It keeps the tracks real interesting, some Funny Shit. But the Beats are Ill as well... Like I said, I know nothing, so I'll let y'all just download & decide.

Wal Martian - Martian Law

Word... I remember some people were asking for some New stuff from Maker. He is one of my favorite producers, so I keep my eye on him constantly, he hasn't dropped too much stuff lately besides his Vinyl Singles. Which, Fortunately for us, have just been released. It's only 3 Tracks, but worth it just the same... I tried to track down those Glue Instrumentals, but didn't have too much luck, maybe somebody can drop those in the Box or something. In the meantime...

Maker - The Maker Files

Cool... Now a Few Discs that I have seen elsewhere, but were surprised that neither of them had been posted over here yet. Diplo & Mr. Cooper. Diplo is on some Dope Shit, I'd say the Mr. Cooper disc is better, but Diplo has his own Sound for sure. Plus, he produced what could be One of the Top Five Beats for the year of 2007, M.I.A's "Paper Planes" Banger... I really recommend the Paper Planes track, I got the Instrumental up here, more so than his Full Disc. There are some Really Good tracks on here, "Summer's Gonna Hurt You" is ILL, but it isn't really consistent. OH, there's some tracks with Vocals as well...

M.I.A. (Prod. Diplo) - Paper Planes Instrumental

Diplo - Florida

FINALLY... The last post of this Mega Drop. Muthafuckin Mr. Cooper. In the Great words of Wake Your Daughter Up:

"WHY has this album not yet been posted on Strictly Beats?"

I don't know... But I got that Shit covered for ya. This disc is EPIC, super Dark & Moody, lots of Guitar use, these tracks are HOT. Perfect for some Late Night driving type shit. Real Dark no doubt... Pretty sure this Disc first dropped in Japan, then spread elsewhere. But I'm pretty sure the dude is from Spain once again. Spaniards & Hungarians, nice with the Production. Alright y'all, until the next Massive Post, enjoy all this Fire, every Post is dope so don't sleep on any of 'em... PEACE BITCHES.

Mr. Cooper - Amongst Strangers

OH, let's calm it down in the C-Box with the Spam OK People... The Shit is POINTLESS, let's keep it Music. WORD...

and eventually it will be available in CD form (for FREE). I would
love for you to share this mixtape with at least 3-5 people and if
you are willing to review it great (I am open for criticism). All I ask is that you listen
