Weird & Strange Hip - Hop Beat Challenge

Greetings NGers,

I shall be putting on the Weird & Strange Hip - Hop Beat Challenge. I have put together some of the finest, strangest & kookiest stuff I could find. I have made it very challenging this time around, ask anyone who has been in my previous ones. This challenge will be all about chopping up the samples & modifying/tweaking them.

We will start as soon as we have more participants & I will give you the sample pack location when we start & other information/instructions that will pertain to the challenge then. If you are interested, please sign up in the comments section on my news page below.

If you have decided, to enter I kindly ask you to please mention it on your news pages The more promotion WE have the better it is for all of US. I hope that you will learn & grow from this challenge & maybe make a few new friends along the way.

I wish the best to all of you & have a great time.
