I always encourage up and coming rappers to start of rapping over freestyle beats as it’s much easier for you to follow the snare. The tempo tends to be commonly found between 85 - 95 BPM. These old school instrumentals are based on old jazz samples. The pioneers these instrumentals included producers like DJ Premier, 9th Wonder and Jay Dilla.

What Are Freestyle Beats?

Freestyle instrumentals are much more simplistic. Consisting of a basic boom-bap drum pattern. Using a combination of the Kick, The Snare and High Hats and some light percussive instruments.

All of the producers would create a simple boom bap beat and add chopped up samples obtained from old soul records. Freestyle beats have much more room in them for the rapper to shine. There is less distraction from the instrumentation to distract the rapper.

Freedom  {Drake Beat}

Freestyle Freedom is a storytelling beat I made in the style of a modern Drake beat. The beat is 100% original instrumentation.

I mixed the beat with some vinyl stock sounds and various filters to give the impression that it is sampled.

The instrumental has a very smooth and soul sound which can be used for a storytelling rap song.

Day Dream { Drake X J Cole Type Instrumental}

Day Dream is also inspired by rap artists like Drake, JCole and Kendrick Lamar.

The beat has a very elegant piano chord structure that I feel will inspire any hip hop artist to rap over.

What I love about this instrumental are the parts where the drums stop and the piano continues. Really placing emphasis on the soul of the song.

Love Child {Modern Beat}

Love Child is a beat that I made a while back when Pusha T had a beef with Drake.

I really like the way Pusha T raps. This is more of a modern rap beat with trap elements.

There is some much space for any rapper to rap over this instrumental. It has the perfect mix of a more modern commercial sound but the instrumentation of a boom bap soul record. 

I Can {Rick Ross Gospel Beat}

I Can is an Instrumental inspired by a Drake song featuring Rick Ross called “Lord Knows”, which was produced by Just Blaze.

Inspired by lord knows I set out to create gospel hip hop beat. Something which suited Rick Ross’s style of rapping.

The "I Can" beat combines gospel elements, energetic boom-bap drums and a powerful bass-driven bass line.

J Cole Instrumental

The Rise is a beat I created which was inspired by J Cole’s and Kendrick Lamar’s more modern approach to hip hop. Combining a very fast trap style drum pattern and very spars old school instrumentation.

The main instrumentation is carried out by a Chinese Loon but is shaped and filter in a way that it sounds like chopped up female vocals.

This beat is much faster {145BPM} than the other boom-bap style beats.

Allot Class {Migos Style Beat}

Instrumental inspired by Migos. My approach to this instrumental is a more relaxed Miami Vibe sound. 

The beat is much more chilled out, and even with the more modern trap 808 kick drum, the beat has an air to it.

While the beat doesn’t have a traditional boom bap storyteller sound, it does mix a more modern summer commercial sound with a classic hip hop vibe.
