Best Free Hip Hop Sample Packs for FL Studio

Sampling has been a part of Hip hop since its beginnings in the 1970s. In fact, it can be argued that sampling gave birth to hip hop. Hip-hop has given rise to hundreds of subgenres since its inception. Crunk, trap, grime, mumble rap, lo-fi and conscious hip hop are just some of them.

Hip hop is known for its hard hitting drums and crisp snares. As you get started with making your hip hop beat in FL Studio, you may not be satisfied with the stock samples that come shipped with FL. So you might embark on a sample search mission, but with the wealth of data on the internet, it may be a tad hard to pick out which pack to download.

In this article, I’ll break down 7 of the best free hip hop sample packs I’ve come across. I will accompany them with their download links so you are free to add and use them in your workflow.
