Rhythm Roulette | Maaly Raw | Mass Appeal
Maaly Raw tried his hand at Mass Appeal’s famed #RhythmRoulette challenge. After strolling through New York City’s Good Records and selecting three albums at random, the Philly trap producer behind Lil Uzi Vert’s “Do What I Want” chops up a few beats on the spot. Utilizing the soundtrack to 1983's ‘The Big Chill’, John Cougar Mellencamp’s ‘Scarecrow’, and Oscar Peterson’s 'Put On A Happy Face' the young producer locks in and delivers three unique beats. How’d he do? “I can kinda hear anyone rapping on this one right here.” Subscribe to Mass Appeal here: http://bit.ly/2qW4NXj Mass Appeal Website | http://massappeal.com Twitter | http://twitter.com/massappeal Instagram | http://instagram.com/massappeal Facebook | http://facebook.com/massappeal
