Bio: Born & Raised in Alief TX (S.W.A.T.) H-Town. Been producing for 20 yrs or so. I’m the CEO and Lead Producer for Medicinal Music Group. I co-founded the label with RediMade, the best Artist out of HTown since Face. We are currently look for more Artist to sign that need distribution.
Who are your top influences? Nile Rodgers, Alchemist, Heatmakers, JustBlaze, Timberland, Pete Rock, Pharrell, and Kanye West
What made you want to make music?
A good friend produced Drum and Bass and i asked why didn’t he make HipHop beats and he looked at me and said “why don’t you make em?” So he started Teaching me Propellerhead’s Reason. I wanted to produce Hip Hop because I had several friends that rapped and i couldn’t rap so i thought making the beats would be fun. Never did i imagine i’d be earning money from it at that time. Then i began producing for all kinds of underground artist outa HTown and even took it a step further and started to engineer and record them as well. So now i do it all, from Producing, Recording, Photo Shoots to Videos.
Are you currently working on any projects?
I am working on RediMade’s next project as well as other Artists that find me on Instagram and got $$$ to pay. Don’t hit me up for free tracks, if you can’t invest in your sounds you shouldn’t be rapping, singing or whatever you do…
How would you describe your sound?
I don’t have one. I like to make whatever I feel like that day. I can do HipHop, RnB, Trap (Don’t Really Like it Though), Pop…
When writing a song, is there a routine you go through?
Depends… If i have an Artist in my studio then i go off their vibe and produce a track to their hook. As for just making tracks; if i am making a sampled type track, i go with the vibe the samples gives me so i start with the samples and then add the basic drums and just build from there. If i am not working with any samples then i just start with drums and bass to design the feel of the track.
