How to produce music tracks in The City

Before you can make music tracks in The City, you must make enough progress in the ‘It’s a Cole World’ quest. This includes doing the raps with PhD Monk and Bas, playing with and then eventually meeting with J. Cole at Dreamville Studio.

After that, you will be able to record a music track. Head into Dreamville Studio, and move into the second room. Then, move towards the producer’s table, and hit either A (for Xbox) or X (for PlayStation).

Here, you will then be able to access the menu that allows players to create tracks. Users can mess around with the different beats and tunes via the buttons, bumpers, and triggers to get the sound. But to start the beat, make sure to hit and hold Menu/Options to start the recording. Once done, press and hold to end the recording. From there, players will then have the option to save the track.

Making music tracks might sound trivial and unimportant, but you will need to access Dreamville Studio and make songs in order to make progress across different quests that pop up in The City. Don’t forget where to go in order to produce tracks.
