The code of the beat.


We are dedicated to featuring the best hip hop music that we can find. Since taste is subjective, this means music that we like or that we believe is worth listening to. This especially includes music that features beatmakers as a part of the focal point. And while we’re equally committed to breaking new sample-based hip hop music, as we believe that it’s the key to the future of the sample-based hip hop community, we also enthusiastically welcome non-sample-based hip hop music.
