Marley Marl – Recreating LL Cool J’s ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ w/ Ableton + APC40

I cannot even being to express how awesome this is. The King of Classics, Marley Marl, gives a bit of background on the making of the seminal LL Cool J hit, “Mama Said Know You Out,” but adds a modern twist by loading the samples into Ableton.

I honestly had no idea that they used filters etc. in this manner to make the sounds. With all of my production knowledge, I learned a ton about how to make a true sampled hip hop beat.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
