Murda Beatz lays it down on an elementary school instrument.
Murda Beatz, though just 23 years of age, has already made a name for himself as one of the most sought-after producers in hip-hop. His beats have helped elevate material from the likes of Gucci Mane. Migos, French Montana, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott and, of course, Drake. Born in Fort Erie, Ontario, there was a Canadian connection when he and Drizzy linked up on the rapper's most recent album/playlist More Life, and now he's bringing you a version of their popular collaboration that would do well in a grade school music class.
Captioning the video with "Found This Recorder From Grade 4... Historically By Yours Truly Young Murda," the young producer plays out the instantly recognizable loop from "Portland," one of the smash hits off of Drake's aforementioned long-form project. With a few simple moves of his finger, he transforms a blue recorder into a device that's capable of interpreting arguably Beatz's biggest hit of his career so far. If the producer's success is an indication of anything, it's this: just because you're playing a recorder, doesn't mean you'll be branded as not cool for the rest of your life.
In other Drake news, the rapper recently showed MF DOOM some love via his Instagram page, sparking intense rumors of an upcoming collaboration between the two of them being in the works. With Pi'erre Bourne already said to be working on some Drizzy's next album, the anticipation continues to build for the Canadian icon's next studio offering.
