Drake – Forever (10 bars chorus)
Jay-Z – Empire State of Mind (10 bars chrous)

  1. This is very important stuff that many DJ’s, esp. newer DJ’s who aren’t pay attention to the music wouldnt be aware of. Good job. I know Empire State of Mind tripped me out the first time I played it and quickly cue pointed to the 4 bar drum beat intro as a loop to save the mix.

  2. Ghetto Superstar always baffles every DJ I ever hear play it.

  3. Yeah man…..if you’re gonna make an effort to be the best at your craft, you have to put the time in to understand this stuff! No DJ can just coast through thinking their natural talent will set them apart lol.
