I'm geeking on this so much: my brother won third place (cool T-shirt) in a remix contest by Raekwon of the Wu-Tang clan! He has friends with a studio and he's collected all this groovy mixing software and he's putting together beats and they are teh awesome. I didn't ask him if I could post his mp3 because he's all gangsta-like protective of his shit. Apparently people will steal your CD's on the street and stuff? Whatever. It's just so cool. There were like 700+ entries.
L'Bro would kill me if I mentioned the slightest possibility that his talent was inherited from our Dad, who has a degree in music theory and can pick up a random instrument and play the shit out of it. My dad would, reciprocally, faint if he heard someone insinuate that hip hop is in any way a thing in the category of "music." Luckily, neither of them reads this. And they are not speaking. Which is understandable given background I'm just going to politely withhold.
