MP3 + Mixtape: IMAKEMADBEATS – "What's It Gonna Be" Feat. Hezekiah, Keziah, And Thomas Clay     02.02.2011

IMAKEMADBEATS And DJ Traumatix Drop Mixtape To Accompany Latest Single

The Song:

"And I'm losing my mind / And I'm below the poverty line... I'm gonna win, though." That's how Philadelphia rapper Hezekiah kicks things off on "What's It Gonna Be," the latest single from producer IMAKEMADBEATS' self-titled debut, available now via Doxside Music Group. An album that ranges from introspective to boisterous, heavy to hazy, all while displaying IMMB's soulful touch throughout, this latest single is instantly inspiring, complete with roaring organs, distorted bass, keys, hand claps, and more.

"I wanted to make music that could change someone's life, even if it's just for a day," says IMAKEMADBEATS, discussing what inspired the track and ending with, "To inspire, to do better, to reach farther." Joining Hezekiah on the track is his sister Keziah, as well as crooner Thomas Clay, who holds down chorus duties. An anthem of defiance and perseverance, with "What's It Gonna Be" IMAKEMADBEATS continues to prove he's one of the top rising producers around.

The Background:

IMAKEMADBEATS has built his reputation on an obsessive dedication to his craft and a mad scientist-like approach to tweaking samples, drums, and live instruments - proving himself to be both a rapper's producer and a producer's producer. Most people first became aware of IMAKEMADBEATS from his 2009 collaborative project The Transcontinental with Oxnard rhyme-slinger Roc C (a project that featured the likes of Oh No, Big Pooh, Rakaa Iriscience, and Chino XL), which subsequently led to the nationwide Smash Mouf Tour. In addition to the much-anticipated forthcoming Doxside Music Group self-titled debut, IMAKEMADBEATS is also unleashing his dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight, featuring Butta Verses and MidaZ the Beast respectively. Also in the works are projects with Beretta 9 (Wu-Tang's Killarmy), his BlakOut album with MidaZ, an instrumental project, and more placements on projects by artists seeking the "IMAKEMADBEATS" treatment to their music.
