With so many drum sample packs out there, it reminds me of a Sticky Fingaz line from the underrated and slept on track Shut Em Down (remix) by Onyx:

With so many wack rappers out here I don’t no where to aim at!

Let’s get into it:

1. Hip Hop Drum Guide Bundle [Drum Kits and Drum Pattern Guides]

This is the best way to get your drum kit fix and making beats. Two reasons why the Hip Hop Drum Guide Bundle is the best in the game:

1. The guides have over 200 drum patterns you can program in your DAW. Never get caught with beat block again.

2. Both drum kits offer a ton of Boom Bap and LoFi drum sounds. The Boom Bap has all the hard hitting sonds and the lofi has all the lofi goodness: Crunchy, gritty, warm, analog, vinyl, tape, and crushed.

2. Young Chop 808’s

An exclusive to Serato Studio this kit includes 8 drum kits and 30 samples. The drums are amazing in this pack and have a wide range of styles all created by Just Blaze himself.

If you haven’t checked out Serato Studio, I recommend it especially if you’re a sample based producer.

5. One Shot Chops [Drum Kit]

A big part of drum kits and music production is the one shot. Yeah full samples are cool and melodic loops work too, but often you need that one sound, that one fx, that something extra to throw into your mix.

Enter One Shot Chops.

6. Hats Off (Hi-Hat Loops & One Shots) by Illmind

When we think about drum sample packs we usually think about kicks, snares, one-shots, and riffs. And oh yeah some hats.

Too often we overlook hats and their importance. So this is pretty dope that Illmind created a whole kit dedicated to the hats. Hats do a lot to dictate the groove, feel, and bounce. Now here’s a whole drum sample pack dedicated to the hats.

7. Boom Bap Drums Vol. 01 [Drum Kit]

Inspired some of the best Boom Bap drum producers and to capture the essence of Hip Hop. The pack includes 10 drum kits each engineered together. 

Each kit sounds like it was made together because it was. These aren't random drum sounds thrown together.

For example, Vinyl Heavy all the sounds have vinyl components.

The drums were custom made to fit the vibes feel and aesthetic of Boom Bap. If you’re looking to make hip hop beats and want to make sure you get plenty bang for your buck, this is the one to go with.

9. The Official 9th Wonder Drum Kit - 9th Wonder Treats

Now this list is in no particular order. So it only makes sense to put a 9th Wonder kit at number 9. An older one but 9th Wonder’s beats and drums are timeless. Best of all, this drum sample pack is free.

It’s a great sample pack to start with. 9th is an elite producer with range, a coveted snare sound, and responsible for some of the best hip hop tracks out there.
