My beats are a combination of New School Drums with New and Old School Techniques. Think DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Eric Sermon, Dr. Dre and J Dilla all rolled into

My influences vary. Hip hop wise it's first and foremost DJ Premier (who I secretly studied under while working at the world famous D&D Studios now known as Headcorters). Then in a three way tie for second I think comes Alchemist, Black Milk and J Dilla. This kid Nottz had me in the lab for about a month heavy when I heard the intro joint to Busta's E.L.E.
