This microscopically complex beat, played by Damion Reid, sets the tone for Robert Glasper's tune, F.T.B. It features rapid 32nd note paradiddle-diddles played between the hi-hat and snare (beginning on the 'e' of beats 2 and 4). Meanwhile, the bass drum anchors the feel, sounding on beats 1 and 3.
