Does anyone on Tildes produce hip-hop instrumentals?

It seems like hip-hop is not the most popular genre on Tildes based on what I see most of the "what are you listening" responses to be, but I want to see if there are any of you out there. I happen to be a big fan of hip-hop, all of it - from 1980 to 2020 and any subgenre that has existed. Just a true love for the art and culture. Out of all that love poetry came into my life, and eventually writing lyrics to hip-hop songs just as some of you talented folk here write to or produce other genres.

I recently decided to take a step and record some of the lyrics I was writing and I feel pretty confident and happy about it for the first time. I like to write to any beats, experimental to boom bap to trap so if you make hip-hop in any sense or with any influence from any sphere of other types of music at all, I'd love to hear some different takes on it.

Bottom line: if I like it and you like my style, let's collab! That's why I'm asking. I just met a dude from Russia via reddit and made a track with him - the internet is an amazing place (I'm from US). So, yes, plug your tracks if you're a producer I want to hear em.

    I'm like fresh fresh when it comes to making beats and I don't have a lot of practice, but I'd be glad to throw some stuff your way and see what your thoughts are / if you feel like you can do anything with them.

    I got a few snippets here and here if you want to see some stuff I've done before. It's not the best, but those are the first couple things I've published. Still playing around with Logic and getting a feel for the whole environment. (Admittedly I haven't touched it really at all the past couple months lmao.)

    Drop some links for vibes you like and I can try my hand at your style.

      Thanks for responding - I'll peep your clips in a lil bit and will edit this comment to show that (I don't have headphones atm). The style I've been posting clips under has been in the vein of gritty old school NYC - Big L, and the whole Diggin in the Crates crew (Big Pun, Lord Finesse, etc.), as well as Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more. Here's a link to a song I did so you can get a direct feel: https://soundcloud.com/stoicdamc/article-214

      Edit: that "dude" beat was pretty cool man, I love the vocal sample. That you singing or a loop?
