Dope Beats #1 – Books of War

In which we look at some of the best beats out there…

“Books of War”

Produced By Omegah Red aka POISON FLOWERZ

From Doom is for the Children mixtape

What makes it work?

“Books of War” has a driving drum kick that never threatens to overtake theĀ  song and it swaggers with the chilled vibe of a Russian gangster. (Russian gangsters are chill….right…? Ok look, that was a bad example, but the imagery still stands.) While “Books of War” shouts its influences loudly, it doesn’t become a cheap imitation of them and it could easily pass as a beat from one of the greats like Dilla or Madlib.
