Rhythm Roulette w/ Big K.R.I.T.

Apologies to future Rhythm Roulette participants, Mississippi’s own Big K.R.I.T. has really raised the bar. With his picks of Linda Clifford I’m Yours, Seatrain’s 1970 self-titled sophomore album, and Culture Club’s Waking Up With the House on FireK.R.I.T. cobbles together a soulful, nasty beat that he describes as “Today Was a Good Day,’ but a Southern version.” Just when you think he’s laid down some sick production, he just keeps rolling, adding flute trills and textural work until the result sounds like a masterpiece.

The real icing on the cake comes at the end, as K.R.I.T. lays down some smooth vocals for a hook on the track. We see him prepping his rhymes for a verse as well, but that full version won’t be available until next week. In the meantime, peep the new episode of Rhythm Roulette above.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Psycho Les (The Beatnuts)

For the latest installment of Rhythm Roulette, we got up with Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, whose random records consisted of albums from The Crusaders, Jim Caraldi, and Jan Garber. Les gave all the records a spin, but ended up pulling from the Jim Caraldi jawn, as well as Jan Garber record. Two beats in record time!

Rhythm Roulette w/ 9th Wonder

After linking up at The Record Krate in Raleigh with North Carolina legend 9th Wonder, we joined 9th back at his studio to watch the master at work. With Charly McClain, Jermaine Jackson, and The Temprees at his disposal, the GRAMMY award-winning producer warmed up with a few quick flips before ultimately chopping up Lovemen. The final result was so crazy, Rapsody immediately hopped in the booth to bless it with a proper verse.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Large Professor

Rhythm Roulette connected with Extra P, aka Large Professor and took the legendary Queens producer to Human Head Records in Brooklyn, where he picked three random records. He ended up grabbing an Instant Funk record, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes’ Black and Blue album, and Shirley Scott’s On A Clear Day. From there, Extra P began to go through the records and create some new heat from what he picked.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Marco Polo

This episode of Rhythm Roulette takes us to Brooklyn’s “The Thing” where we linked up with illustrious producer to the underground Marco Polo.
