    Focus...
    I got fans...lol. Yo, honestly i go in and just do it. There's no process, it's a feeling. They, [the beats], come from my dreams, my wild imagination, a passing thought, shit, a t.v. show... once i catch the vibe, i run to my equipment.

    Aftermathmusic.com:
    How do you make sure the drums fit the beat?

    Focus...
    Once my neck starts working overtime, the drums are working. i need to hear that snare hit hard, the kick pound in my chest, the percussion to be crisp... that's what i look for.
