"dane cook ruined my lost beats: 2003-2005"
back in 2003-2005, when mp3.com was still paying for plays and rappers were buying beats from anonymous internet producers for hundreds of dollars, "tagging" your beats was a thing - putting either a "vocal tag" saying stuff like "HOTBEATZ.COM - BEATS FOR SALE" or whatever - so someone would have to pay you to send them the beat without the tags.
Also, in 2003-2005, i was depressed, and partially blamed that on spending too much time digging through records and making beats. so...i deleted...a LOT of beats. some i had burnt on cds or sent people and stuff that i managed to get back, but i'd estimate about 250 of them were gone, forever.
Most of them are still gone, but i recently came across someone rapping on one of the ones from that era i thought was gone. To my amazement, he had at least 10 I thought were gone forever - with one catch - at the time, I had randomly put dane cook stand up to "tag" them and prevent anyone from using them without my sending the untagged version.
i put what I consider the best stuff toward the front - the first 10, for whatever its worth, are personal classics to me. but...theyre not great quality mp3s and have dane cook, so for that reason i'm just uploading it to mediafire, no cover art or anything.
here's one more on soundcloud:
and here's the whole thing for anyone who wants to hear it (i added a few at the end that weren't lost, but seem to fit in). http://www.mediafire.com/download/2b2kdhnp5w3oiic/Dane%20Cook%20Ruined%20My%20Lost%20Beats%20-%202003-2005.zip
