RHYTHM ROULETTE – EXILE

Mass Appeal’s “Rhythm Roulette” series ventures to the domain of producer Exile and has him craft a beat from three randomly selected records. Watch the magic happen.

This time around, Exile joins us to play a game of Rhythm Roulette. Exile’s ability to manipulate and finely chop sounds into soulful and melodic beats are what sets him apart from most. From doing work with Mass Appeal Records’ Fashawn, to crafting airy choir-like joints for Mobb Deep, Exile’s music speaks for itself.

After making his way through three randomly selected records, Exile flipped one of the records in three different ways, showing how versatile his beats can get. He even managed to sample Fashawn and include his vocals on one of the tracks.

FASHAWN – HIGHER

Fashawn’s Exile-produced ode to his daughter Hannah get the visual treatment off of his critically acclaimed album The Ecology.

“The video brings the song to life in an organic and beautiful way. There isn’t enough positive images of young black men out there being fathers to their kids to begin with, especially in rap videos. I believe it’s a break from the norm and a side of me of that my audience doesn’t get to see everyday.”
