Exile Proves Why He Stands Alone as a Producer on ‘Rhythm Roulette’ (Video)
In the latest installment of “Rhythm Roulette” – a musically diabolical segment from Mass Appeal which challenges heavyweight producers with creating a beat live, based on three random finds at a record store – Exile is in the crosshairs. The Los Angeles native has helped create classic material from Open Mike Eagle, Pharoahe Monch, Big Sean, and of course Blu, with whom he released two collaborative albums and an E.P. More recently, he produced The Ecology, Sacramento MC Fashawn’s latest album, in its entirety.
Past contenders on “Rhythm Roulette” include Black Milk, El-P, !llmind, Oh No, Ski Beatz, and more but this time it’s Exile’s turn. In front of a small audience, he listens to his three song choices, chops them up, and delivers a finished product that is more polished than what the average producer could create. But then again, Exile is not average, so it surely comes as no surprise to Heads. Check out the man in action.
