Using the term “underrated” to describe someone with a massive amount of talent seems like a disservice, especially for a producer like Supa Dave West, who has crafted countless classic joints for the likes of De La Soul, J Dilla, and more.
Now, West has found his time to truly shine with the instrumental project Beat Boxing. The 23-track project features a vast soundscape of joints ranging from airy, atmospheric hard-hitting beats to shit that will make your face twist up— in a “I have to rewind this” way, of course. However, the project isn’t just limited to that range, as West manages to experiment with his unique sound with jawns like “Heaven” and “Dove’s Basement.”
The fact that he’s able to drop an instrumental project heads are actually checking for is a testament to the work Supa Dave West put in on the production side over the years. While a large majority of the music he’s made is ill, we were curious as to what his top five favorite productions are from over the years.
So without further ado, here are Supa Dave West’s favorite Supa Dave West beats.
