New attempt from a Jim Riley track from the "Survival Guide Of The Modern Drummer"

After almost a year I finally tried one more Jim Riley play-along from his great
and very recommended book. I like his "Hip-Hop" track, and I tried it in a
swung version although the original is "officially" binary.

I purposely haven't listened to any other versions, let alone an original version
(if that exists, maybe by Jim himself?), because the interesting thing with this
play-alongs to me is seeing what I can come up with by myself.

Here's my attempt:

Well chances are pretty high that I don't know what I'm talking about, but when you started playing the snare drum it sounded like your playing was off. I did like some of the interesting things you played towards the end.
