The Beat Breakdown: Young Jeezy - I Got This

This is a new thing i wanna start doing up on this blog, just because im pretty peculiar about this sort of thing haha. basically i post a song, as well as the sample used for this song.
i try to break it down as much as my knowledge would allow me to.
so here's the first of a hopefully a number of this kind of posts,
the Tictac beat breakdown

SONG: Young Jeezy - I Got This

Sample Used: Black Smoke - You needn't worry Now

The Breakdown: So the producer for this Track is up-and-coming producer, and Just Blaze prodigy, Beewirks . There's only a couple of chops from the track that was sequenced for this beat, the same intro was used for the jeezy track, the prechorus at 1:05 for the breakdown of the beat, and ,the main sample that was used for the whole track, the chorus from 1:21.
what i really makes this beat is that main loop that's used throughout most of the track. its one of those samples that even if you loop it, you never get tired of hearing it. and it works well even if it was looped a bunch of times. That is essential when it comes to a simple sequenced beat such as this. The strings from the sample gives this track it's soul, and it perfect for backing up Jeezy's voice. I almost hear it like a harmony between violin and cello. Big ups to Beewirks for cooking up this classic. Now how about we get our hands on TM103 already, no?
