    10 Dope Beats That Use The Piano
    May 1, 2014 at 04:44pm
    Hip hop beats are beautiful, no doubt. But the most superb ones are done by going back to the basics by using an age-old instrument integral to the evolution of not just Hip Hop, but of all music in general: the piano. Though the piano started off being equated with classically-trained musicians, it soon found its way to jazz, which used the instrument in a more progressive manner, and subsequently, it found its way to hip hop.

    Coming up with the right supporting beats and melody in a hip-hop track can be extremely challenging. Not to mention the time and effort it takes to make an original beat. In this day and age, artists often borrow music from other songs and build off it, to create a new and unique beat-- obviously, this is called sampling. Out of the 16 tracks put out on Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, 12 of them were sampled with other songs and beats.

    The first time you heard Jay Z's verse on DJ Khaled's "They Don't Love You No More", you may have speculated that Hov was dissing Drake in his final bars. One thing that likely didn't cross your mind as you were getting caught up in subliminals was the unapologetic shot he took at lacrosse in the process. "Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring / Wrong sport boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team". Well, a spokesperson for Major League Lacrosse certainly caught the jab, and unlike Drake, he felt the need to respond instantly.
