My friend Jimo visited, and he brought his saxophone, so I recorded him playing over a beat I thought of about seven years ago but never made real. The beat is just electric piano, an accordion-like synth, and a pre-set drumkit with some built-in crackle. Before the beat drops in, I threw in another dash of record sample from my new collection.
Jimo also recited a rap he wrote over a decade ago, while working at an Applebee’s on the Jersey shore. I didn’t even know people were popping collars back then!
