damn...that's pretty good. i always like playing around with fruity loops when i'm stoned. but they never come out sounding good like that.

like the other guys said, you need some repitition, if even just enough to keep people's attention and add flair to the freestyle/battle (but not enough to fuck up the freestylers)

the second one was weak,
but the third one is indeed cool :thumbup:

i don't really got anything to say about the first.. i just didnt really like it, thats all

It's an ok start, at least you've found some cool sounding drums. You definitely need variation, like others here said.
Listen to hip-hop you like, and try and focus just on the beats, not on the MC. Pay attention to how they might drop one part of the beat for a measure, and then pick it up---stuff like that. Or how they totally change it up.

The first one is a good foundation for 1 bar, but definitely not enough for 4 minutes.
The second one I must admit I don't like because
a) you sampled Moonlight Sonata, and that's just about untouchable in my eyes :wink: and
b) it's not on time in its repetition. Try and learn how to vary the pitch on .wav samples to fit your tempo, or vise-versa.  In FL in the channel window there's a spot for a number down in the lower left corner--this is in order to fit the sample in (so many beats).

Keep experimenting, my first beats were hella primitive too. Fool with every knob in FL you can, they are quite handy :smile:

If you have any questions, post em up!
