Recreating Nas “Halftime” [Large Professor]

Another beat-break down video is up! This time I took on Nas’ classic “Halftime” produced by Large Professor. I initially thought this beat was a lot simpler, but once I got into it, I saw how much work Large Pro put into it.

The beat featured a filtered bassline, a horn stab sample, and some drum breaks. While it’s only a few samples, there was quite a bit of processing/chopping done on these.

YouTube thinks it’s the real version so I guess I got it to sound pretty close!
