DON’T SLEEP: Dr. Khil “The Billion Dollar Evaluation” [BEAT TAPE]
A while back on @ProducersIKnow’s Twitter account I proposed that one of the many producers/beatmakers that follow said account should make a beat tape/instrumental project using Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ score from “The Social Network” and call it “The Billion Dollar Evaluation”. Dr. Khil hit me up and took the challenge. Here it is the 2nd anniversary of “The Social Network” opening in theaters and here’s PIK x Dr. Khil’s “The Billion Dollar Evaluation”. Don’t sleep…
DON’T SLEEP: Ill Clinton “Ill Lumbergh: The Lost Files Vol. 1” [BEAT TAPE]
I don’t know what happened to “SKYWALKEN 2” but “Ill Lumbergh: The Lost Files” is dope too even though I was noticing that they weren’t any vocal stabs or “Office Space” dialogue used to tie it together even for interludes. In any event? Don’t sleep…
DON’T SLEEP: Thesselonious AKA P.Kaye “Prince Paul Saved My Life” [BEAT TAPE]
I just saw Thesselonious post this link on Twitter and I looked thru PIK to see when I posted this because I don’t remember doing it. It turns out that I missed it due to my involvement with “The Smooth Grooves Beat Tape” and some other PIK business that had me swamped. I’ll make amends for that today by finally posting Thesselonious AKA P.Kaye’s beat tape dedicated to the production genius known as Prince Paul, “Prince Paul Saved My Life”. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Ill Clinton “SKYWALKEN” [BEAT TAPE]
Ill Clinton followed up his last beat tape “The Antisocialist” with this 11 slap opus titled “SKYWALKEN” which had me hoping for a gang of beats with Christopher Walken dialogue from his films all over it. In any event, “SKYWALKEN” is hella dope. Don’t sleep on it you bastards…
DON’T SLEEP: HP Tha Hybrid “Off The Cuff” [BEAT TAPE]
HP Tha Hybrid sent this beat tape to my Gmail inbox a while back but it got buried by a ton of other stuff I’m working on for Producers I Know coming in October. He reminded me of it via Twitter and I got to listening. I slept and I’m sorry. Don’t be like me, people. Be better than me.
DON’T SLEEP: Shade Cobain “Cobainish Theory” [NEW INSTRUMENTAL PROJECT]
Straight from the front page of JillzWorth’s Them Fighting Words comes the third installment in Pittsburgh beatmaker/producer Shade Cobain’s recent series “Cobainish Theory”. The cover art was done by the lovely and talented iNanz & this shit bangs from beginning to end. Cop it via his Bandcamp page, don’t sleep on this jawn. Also don’t sleep on Scrambled Crates. I love that shit!
DON’T SLEEP: Dr. Khil “Khilgore Trout” [BEAT TAPE]
Dr. Khil of the Drum Snobs Collective dropped an inventive beat tape inspired by some of the greatest characters in American literature. Go ahead and listen to “Khilgore Trout” and beginning the process of coming into knowledge and not longer being unaware. Great feeling, isn’t it?
