  6. MusicStudy/The BeatTips E-Diggin' Shop Last Post

    MusicStudy is the most essential form of practice for any musician, but it is of special interest to beatmakers, who often rely on their ability to reconceptualize and recontextualize there musical influences. Thus, because of the lack of record stores and "dig spots" around the world—which makes it difficult for new and existing beatmakers to discover very valuable older music— this section will serve as an appendix of and "gateway" to that music and its subsequent education.

"I have been producing beats for a number of years now, and finding this caliber of literature is not always easy. Your book is ridiculously tight, knowledge...is spilling from each page. I couldn?t put the book down, I rolled meticulously from cover to cover, I didn?t want to miss a sentence."
--Phil Rose

"The BeatTips Manual is one of the best investments I have made in beat making and as a fan of hip hop...the sheer size of the book is amazing. The BeatTips Manual has definitely given me a lot to think about. Thank you very much for your efforts and work in this book. It needs to be required reading for anyone getting into beatmaking or hip hop production."
--Charles Purnell

"Ive had the 5th edition for a few weeks now and the book is nuts man. The book is huge and full of more goodness than the 4th with an even more extensive look at hip hop's roots, culture and production. Ive read the 4th edition multiple times and constantly used it for a reference when making beats, but this 5th edition is something else! The 5th has increased my knowledge of hip hop unlike any other book, and I have read a lot of hip hop books. Sa'id thank you for your dedication and love for hip hop and you hard work to keep it alive. Hip Hop thanks you!"
--Brandon F

"Detailed and thorough, I'd consider The BeatTips Manual to be the go-to guide for beatmaking. Highly recommended!"
--Ivan Rott, HipHopIsRead.com

"Sa'id, I just got my copy of The BeatTips Manual, and I LOVE it. I've been producing for about 4 years now, and I've read all sorts of books, websites, forums and instructional videos, and I can honestly say, that this is by far THE BEST aid I've ever found."
--Nick "Stealf" Lester

"This is by far the single best book focusing on Hip Hop production. It is an absolute must read and it's for anyone beginning or continuing their journey into production. It will prove highly valuable and pay countless dividends to anyone willing to invest the time to obtain the vast wealth of knowledge and wisdom contained in its pages. Also, with interviews from renowned producers such as DJ Premier...and others being worth the price of admission, the book acts as a triple bonus."
--CrateKings.com

"I just wanted to thank you for this new 5th edition of The BeatTips Manual...it's beautiful! You are doing a great job and I wish you much success."
--Chiemela (aka AC)
