BeatTips Pick of the Week: Paten Locke – “Soup for One” & “Breakthu”


With Live Studio 2-Song Set, P Locke Serves More Notice Of The Impending Beatmaker-Rapper Era

By Amir Said (Sa’id)

I’m impressed by Paten Locke. His beatmaking style has a lot of “soul” in it. His rhyme flow is raw, and his rhymes are (from most that I’ve heard), straight forward, easy to listen to but not pedestrian. And what really makes Paten stand out his uncompromising style, both on the beats and the rhymes.
