We’re going to keep it similar to the last battle with a few change ups! I hope people are down with the idea.
As it was recently the 30th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory LP, participants should create a track that uses part of or all of one (or both!) of the acapellas provided OR another Tribe vocal if they can find it - there isn’t much out there that doesn’t sound like arse.
Battle specific rules
You have to use all 3 submitted sample selections, the drum samples and something from an acapella in your beat. (A loop, a little chop, that’s up to you).
You cannot use outside samples EXCEPT A Tribe Called Quest acapella (if you can find one) other than what’s provided here.
No external instruments. Nothing. Nope. Nada. But you have 3 full ‘songs’ and a suite of drums and two acapellas to work with
Also peace to @drrumble who I hope doesn’t mind me nicking a lot of his words here!

(^^ Yes it’s not from Low End but damn there’s f all out there!)
Anyone who wants to join has to submit their track in this thread by Friday, October 29. Your track should be made respecting the rules above.
You can submit the song in any format or on any platform. You can only submit one single beat for the battle!
After this deadline we will vote in a new thread. Only people who participated can vote, and only after listening to each song. You’ll choose one song as your first place pick and two runners up. Each first place pick will be worth two points. Runners up will each receive one point. You cannot vote for yourself.
Good luck and have fun!
