Learn to produce hip-hop tracks! This book traces the technological evolution of hip-hop from its inception to contemporary times, from its roots in New York and L.A. to its variations worldwide. You will explore the hits of the major eras and regional subgenres of hip-hop, identifying the production practices and products that defined each stylistic sound. Directed practice exercises and downloadable online audio tracks will give you hands-on experience with hip hop's classic tools, while you develop your own production style.

From “Rappers Delight” to “Old Town Road,” from Afrika Bambaataa to Drake, from Kanye West to DJ Mustard, from Salt-N-Pepa to Cardi B., you'll learn the tools and techniques of hip-hop's most influential producers and learn many ways to lend authenticity and life to your own beats!

Author Prince Charles was a producer and recording and mixing engineer for the hip-hop label, Bad Boy Records, founded by rapper Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs. The artist roster included the Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige. Prince Charles “deconstructs” several of the songs he worked on, including “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G., “I'm Going Down” by Mary J. Blige, and “I'll Be Missing You” from Puff Daddy.
