You know what's an unexpected norm? It seems like the most boppable beats to come out of hip-hop are made by talented white dudes. One of those talented dudes is Hudson Mohawke who is a well known producer who works with rappers such as Kanye, Pusha T, and Big Sean. Today, I want to highlight a recent release of his that has been teased for a while now. Scud Books will be your ultimate confidence booster and here's why:
- As I mentioned before, Hudson Mohawke is a talented producer who knows his way around a MPC. At the tender age of 15, he was the a UK DMC finalist and ever since he has been making beats that slay. Check out his track record on Wikipedia.
- The drums in this track are that of a traditional drum machine and you can feel that in the song. The crisp hats and the bass of the kick drum are enough to increase your heart rate and get you excited.
- The strings and the chords are what create that invigorating atmosphere in the track. If I am feeling like shit in the morning, I will blast this track through my headphones which is the equivalent of receiving a pep talk from Morgan Freeman. You don't have to be royalty to feel like a king.
The song is in on Spotify and here is the video for your viewing pleasure.
