Mass Appeal is back with a new episode of Rhythm Roulette, which features the hit-maker, DJ Khalil.
If you’re new to Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal has a producer pick 3 records blind-folded. Once they pick their 3 records, they must use those records to help craft a beat, which is fully documented.
For this episode, Mass Appeal had this to say on their Youtube Channel:
For the latest episode of Rhythm Roulette, we met up with DJ Khalil. Khalil is behind some major tracks for superstars like 50 Cent (“I’ll Still Kill”) and Eminem (“Survival”), plus he has a long list of Billboard Hot 100-charting singles. His full discography stretches back almost two decades through his deep roots in the LA hip hop underground, and he’s spent lots of time at to the console alongside Dr. Dre. And he’s still putting out heat. Recently, Khalil produced the A$AP Ferg banger “East Coast,” he has multiple credits on Joey Bada$$’ ‘All Amerikkkan Badass’ (one of 2017’s best albums so far), he did two tracks on Anderson.Paak’s breakout ‘Malibu.’
With that proven track record, we had to see what Khalil could do with the Rhythm Roulette challenge. At Artform Studios in Los Angeles, he picked out some dark side flower power with a Doors album, a Congregation record from the early ’70s and a soul selection from Charles Wright to balance it all out. Because Khalil frequently works with rock samples, it seems like dude got the perfect ingredients.
