Where I'm From, Marcy Son, Ain't Nothin' Nice
"Where I'm From" is without a doubt one of my favorite Jay-Z songs. It's gotta be the hardest beat Jay's ever rapped over, and you can feel the menace of the projects just listening to this classic. When I saw that Amen-Ra, a member of Diddy's production team, The Hitmen, made a video describing how he created "Where I'm From," I knew I had to post this. I'm a sucker for watching production "how to" videos. There are tons of them all over youtube, including ones with Black Milk, 9th Wonder, The Heatmakerz, D.R. Period, and Just Blaze, so I'll be sure to post some of those in the future.
