In The Lab with Boi-1da

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

As we speak, some rapper is somewhere huddled over a notebook or iPhone furiously writing to the “0 To 100” beat. I am certain of this. And so it goes with damn near everything Boi-1da unleashes into the wild. From “Pound Cake” to “Chi-Raq”, this guy’s beats have laid the foundation for numerous hits over the last couple of years and he’s showing no signs of letting up anytime soon. For our latest installment of In The Lab, we kicked it with the young Toronto genius about his early days a bedroom producer, his preferred studio setup, sample digging habits and of course his beat making process. He broke down some of his biggest tracks for artists like Drake, Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Eminem, and he revealed how Golden Era 90s Hip-Hop influences him to this day.
