    Definitely valid points here. As a hiphop head and guitarist for 20+ yrs, i can say that playing in that setting is very difficult. You have to be tight and emulate sampling, but be able to swing at the same time. My attempts have been very hit and miss. I have seen Oddisee and Atmos kill it, but they obviously put lots of thought and rehearsal into making it work. I was wondering if Print or Illogic could possibly share an Eyedea story in one of the podcasts coming up, as his passing anniversary is approaching (10.16.10). Thank you and peace
