We've spoken before about how amazing it is to see Exile do his live MPC show. For those of you who have not seen it, Exile hit OKP with three exclusive videos where he flips some samples live on his MPC. This guy impresses me every time. Exile's new album, Radio, is droppin' on January 20th (his first album since Below The Heavens). I've heard it and it's serious – the album is 100% sampled from L.A. radio waves (hence the title). Above is a video he calls "Bounce," and after the jump  is "Watermelon Man" (Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters) and "Psych Rock."  If you are in NYC, make sure you catch Exile with Blu who will open for Talib Kweli's group Idle Waship (Kwe, Res + Graph Nobel) at B.B. Kings on Dec. 22nd.

    This some of the most illest beat-makin I ever seen.
    On the M-P-C…pads patched pristeen.
    Exile hold the style for a sound so clean.
    A pure Hulk on tha machine, compositions is mean.
    That “to tha core” hip-hop, a true lyricists dream.
    That “Boom-Bap! Run-it-Back! Rap Attack!” on tha scene.
    That dope smack to tha veins like the tracks on a fiend.
    We need that. It’s a fact. Keep doin’ ya thing!

    Big Up to Exile! Much Tribute!

  • Hiphop’s savior…

    Is it just me, or was that David Axelrod’s “The Edge” sample on the first video??? The top 8 pads I’m pretty positive are from “The Edge”… someone correct me if I’m wrong… ill sample flip!

  • bunnyconlin

    The top one was little too experimental, the bottom one was bold. Brilliant. Just kills it, stright up and down from here to Chinatown.

  • Dza

    Pioneers of that shit. Its only trhe beginning. Its just advancing the artform. Dope.

  • Brian Tabalba

    That “Bounce” video isn’t working. But love the rest…can’t wait ’til Radop comes out.

  • Brian Tabalba

    The other 2 aren’t workin’ now

  • Hiphop’s savior…

    I have new found respect for that top video… after checkin’ it out a couple more times, I realized that the bottom 8 pads are samples from Zapp’s “Computer Love”… and the top 8 pads are definitely “The Edge” by David Axelrod…. SIIIICK blending of the 2 songs from 1:40 to 1:50

  • Sean-Toure’

    I saw Exile do the MPC freestyle thing at a show he and Blu did in Baltimore and I was totally blown away. Much respect to you man. You’ve got madd range with your production styles and great texture to your beats.


    Vishhhh!! pode cre. mpc akai real beatmaker.

  • MAlthe

  • SuttonAdele

    If you’re in uncomfortable position and have no cash to move out from that, you would have to receive the mortgage loans. Just because it will aid you unquestionably. I get credit loan every time I need and feel myself fine because of it.
