In this tutorial we cover how to make a track similar to “Free Smoke” by Drake, produced by Boi1da. “Free Smoke” is the opening track on More Life and Drake doesn’t disappoint. Dropping bar after bar over menacing Boi1da production, this track is a definite standout on the album.
In this tutorial we aimed to create something that has that same dark, aggressive mood but is still all original. We used FL Studio for this tutorial but the techniques should transfer over to almost any DAW. Watch the full tutorial above and make sure to let us know your thoughts!
