TheNewprint700x700

Lando Beats, whose production resume includes tracks crafted for Troy Ave, Ryshon Jones & Franc Grams drops his latest project titled “The Newprint” today. He Flips Jay Z’s critically acclaimed “The Blueprint” album, but puts a spin on things by featuring his own production.

“When you think of Sept. 11, 2001 typically the first thing that will come to mind are the terrorist attacks. That was also the same day that Jay Zreleased his sixth studio album titled “The Blueprint”. It’s a classic album that undoubtedly changed the landscape of hip-hop. I recently stumbled upon the Blueprint acapellas so I decided to put my own twist on things and remix the entire project to feature my own production yet keep the same feel as the original album. So 12 years after The Blueprint, I offer you… The Newprint. Enjoy.” -Lando Beats

Video: Lando Beats Flips “Bound” Sample By Ponderosa Twins Plus One

Says Lando:

I’ve always been a fan of how The Heatmakerz flipped samples, & after I heard what they did with “Bound 2” on Kanye’s new album it left me wondering how that beat would’ve sounded if they’d produced it for someone during the Dipset era rather than for Kanye West in 2013. This beat video is really nothing more than my take on that concept & paying homage to them.
