Asap Rocky- 1 Train

This song has such a 90's feel which I usually dislike, but I can't stop listening. I love the drums, do you think that's just all programmed or maybe a break beat?

Your thoughts?

This ASAP guy is contributing to the death of hip hop and laughing about it with his hoes. ASAP Rocky should ask Aesop Rock if he can be kicked in the face!

+1 for kicking that guy in the face. I'm a fan of hip-hop like Aesop Rock and it offends me that a clown can use a name even remotely similar.

Agreed, the drums are dope. Hit boy is the producer, his drums are always very impressive. He's a guy who's gifted with his sound selection.

My thoughts is that you probably didn't like 90's feel Hip Hop because your hipster icons weren't the ones doing it... soon as they drop a joint with it...it's cool.

That's just my guess....

that being said... it's trash IMO

EDIT: The best is cool...Bronson and, ironically ASAP rep on it.. and D Brown too.. everybody else is Eh... Lamar was the corniest

those drums have been sampled to death in the 90's, maybe you're more into 90's stuf than you think.
there's tons of versions of this song btw, all have great drums, all were sampled heavily.

If Aesop Rock had a problem with it I'm sure we'd have heard him go after Rocky by now.

I like the music of both BTW.

When I heard that song, I literary wanted to commit a suicide, because I made a 90% similar beat 6 years, ago, everything is the same, sampling style, even the drums are in a similar style. I made it like 6 years ago, and I played it to hundreds of artists and nobody wanted it, and all of the sudden a similar, almost the same beat pops out and everybody talks how's it's a great beat and love it and blahblah. And plus my favorite new artist (Yelawolf) spits on it

Here is so you can hear it, maybe the pitch of the sample is slightly different, but it is mostly the same. I was astonished when I heard that they dug that sample and chopped it in almost the same way. I don't implicate that they recreated my beat, because my beat never left my hard drive, because nobody wanted it

I just dislike the subject matter of most 90's New York Hip Hop. It's nothing I could relate to. And most rappers during that time, and still to this day, from NYC sound the same.

I believe you, i did the sample from the bath scene in "Coming to America" and artist thought it was too gimmicky.
I almost had a heart attack when i heard Nottz place that beat/sample with Snoop & Rkelly for "That's that ****" - this happens all the time imo.

Well yeah, coincidences happen all the time, specially when you using samples. There was few more times when I made beats and later on heard the songs that are made with the same sample, similar sample structure, but almost always the sample chops weren't the same and weren't laid down the same way, this is the closest that happened to me.

EDIT: and here's the original sample



I can't belive what people writes.

You guys are tripping this song is a banger. It's not "lyrical underground hip hop" but good song to cruise to. Joey probably has the best verse. Yelawolf with the worst

Great minds think alike I guess. Damn I like tht beat. I'm not into Asap that much but this joint is crazy and definately my favorite from the album. Boom bap to the core. Even scratches and all that. No hook just dope rhymes and a dope loop.

Nothing really impressive about the beat and the arrangment. All been done before (sounds a little too familiar almost lol). Mix is nice though. MC's do their work. Over all, it does what it does. It wouldn't stop me dead in my tracks to find out the who / what / when but I'm definitely not mad at it. It rolls, let it play....it's all good.
