Black Octopus Sound has released Hip Hop Strings, a 2GB sample pack that combines live recorded strings samples with a selection of drums.
Violins, cellos, bass, pizzicato plucks, and harmonized riffs can all be combined to construct your own loops and patterns, and the loops can easily be dropped in any DAW or MPC for easy chopping & slicing.
There is also an entire section dedicated to gritty and raw hip hop drums. The drums have an organic quality and are designed to sit perfectly along with the strings in the mix. Build up your own beats from scratch using the included one shots, or chop up and slice to loops to build your own variations.
