STBB#688 TY

Sat May 09, 2020 7:03 am

TY Week

Since TY (the UK rapper with the alias that’s probably one of the worst to google) passed away because of covid-19 this week, I thought I’d include two acapellas - please do them justice and do some great remixing!

I’d strongly suggest you check out his work if you didn’t already.

RIP!

Rules

- Use at least a bit of all three musical samples in your beat
- Use at least one of the acapellas somehow recognizably in your beat
- Time limit: 3 mins
- No external samples (instruments, drums, synths etc are okay)
- No external vocalshots or acapellas


Samples
(mp3): https://we.tl/t-B5NE7ty0x4


The Fine Print:
Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB ### * weeknumber “ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.
Try to leave as much feedback as you can and you will receive it back.
For easy browsing's sake, you can also go to the STBB page: https://soundcloud.com/stbbcollection
Label entries that are posted after the deadline as 'late entry' and entries that don't comply with the rules as: 'non-entry' in your track title.
EVERYONE VOTES - by Friday at Midnight, Pacific time
Winner: post new sample, rules, etc by Saturday at Noon, Pacific time and upload the sample here: https://wetransfer.com/

RIP TY

Thanks Per.du for this and Congrats on the win.

My Golden era was the late 90's early 2000 and we used to download tons of music from napster. Ty must have been in there somewhere voice sounds super familiar.I know he did a ft. on Roots Manuva as well. I will try to honor him with something as dope as the original beat if possible.This is the era of music I try to emulate the most. Those beats though.. holy crap batman.

The Originals

Ty / Sophisticated and Coarse Feat. Eska

TY / Look 4 Me

I understand that many here won't realise the significance of this loss vs some of the global superstars we've been celebrating recently.

per.du I appreciate you for doing this.

peace, love and blessings to everyone here.

What's up everybody? Dope materials this week! I've got a little bit of everything in there. I chopped up the vocal and created a little Kool Keith style hook as well. I wasn't familiar with this MC, but super dope stuff. RIP.

PS: That was tough using something from each of those music tracks! I think one was in a major key, while the others were minor, so I had to teach myself some basic pitch correction to get it to sit right. That's what a love about these battles. They always push me to learn something new!

Thanks for doing this. TY used to had a Facebook group called the Beat Inn which is how i got to know him. He's always supported me whilst developing as a producer. He was well loved in the UK Hip Hop scene especially.

Will try to get a beat done for this one..... I was blessed to have hung out with TY several times throughout the years and he will remain to be a significant influence for years to come. Me and my crew DJ at a spot in Brixton every month (Pre-covid) and he would often pass thru and say Hi and hang out, plus my good friends The Unsung Heroes produced his first album 'Awkward'... A great guy and an AMAZING MC... Heres a couple of my fav tracks of his-







PEACE :peace: RIP
