Khrysis: On The Boards With The Heat Vol. 2 Mixed by DJ Rhettmatic

Khrysis is one of the main in-house producers for North Carolina rap collective the Justus League, alongside 9th Wonder. In addition to producing Justus League artists he has also produced for artists such as Sean Price, Masta Ace, and Jean Grae. His productions utilize samples of records with intricate melodies and diverse drum beats. He began in his teens, recording tracks from his father's massive jazz and R&B record collection onto tape, and then extracting drum samples to make loops using a dual cassette player. He worked at his college's radio station, WNCU, where he met rapper Chaundon, who introduced him to 9th Wonder, and while attending North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina, he began an association with the Justus League. (WIKIPEDIA)

Now this is an instrumental mixtape mixed by none other then Rhettmatic from the Beat Junkies, It's a free download (you gotta love the net) and it feels like J Dilla's Donuts meaning every track is about two minutes long and it's mixed to perfection. Now a lot of people are saying that he's just a 9th wonder copy however I'm not convinced, I mean their beats are somewhat constructed the same way but that's about it now I'm not gonna take away 9th Wonder's skill but I think in this hip hop world there's enough room for both.

Bottom line, this is real dope and it's cool to appreciate just the instrumental aspect of hip hop music. This cat's been making noise in the underground for a minute and he's definitely on my list of top producers and that mixtape will give you a sample.
