these aren't terrible, the sounds you picked to use aren't the best, but that's my ear and the pitching of them sounds a bit off to my ear.
drums aren't terrible, the kicks need more presence, and the snare needs more snap. it does sound like it was quantized (which means snapped to be on perfect time, if you didn't know). part of what makes a great beat imo, is the natural swing that comes from slight human errors
mostly I would just work on mixing, the beat had good progression. everything else takes time and effort. but for a first go, I can hear potential.
don't mind Monk, if I remember his first beat he dropped here was actually just a Tragedy Khadafi beat
Thanks man! All I'm using right now is FL. I figured it'd be a cool starter tool for getting the feel of it. And it's all a lot easier than I thought. The composition is anyway. Perfecting the mixing & mastering is the tricky part. But just gimmie a minute... Never takes me long to learn what I want to learn.
