Beat maker series: How to make a Polo G style beat on BandLab

How to make a Polo G style beat

Everyone loves a rags-to-riches story. Always a glimmering beam of hope that maybe, just maybe, I might make it big one day too. The Chicago rapper Polo G tells one of those stories. But it’s no fairy tale for sure.

The city he grew up in is best know for drill music, a hip hop subgenre hardened by life on the streets. Polo G grew up on those streets, and his music encapsulates his struggles and early life perils in a brutally honest way. The big difference between Polo G’s music and many of his peers lie in the fact that his lyrics are just that relatable to his listeners. He spills his heart out in with melodic flows around piano-centric trap beats, showcasing an emotional openness that’s so refreshing in the world of hip hop.

In this video tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a Polo G beat from scratch on BandLab’s free online web Mix Editor.
