But if Soulja Boy can find beats like this in between making YouTube vids & participating in beefs with all challengers, why in the bloody name of all things holy can’t artists like Nas and all others affected by with QB Syndrome find production like this? Sure, Natural Disaster and Antonio Top Cat are unheard of, but if young Deandre can find them, why can’t Budden, Ortiz, etc.?
Say what you will about SB’s content, lyrical abilities…hell, his whole artistic persona. But knowing that a major factor in the success of a song lies in the beat, I would say he’s doing one thing right, which leads to the other thing he’s doing correctly: making hits.
This post is brought to you after a recent witnessing of “Turn My Swag On” come through the speakers @ two separate parties and the crowd losing it, literally. Whether they had it to begin with is totally arguable but beside the point @ this juncture.
