Black Music Month: 10 Songwriters And Producers To Watch
I’ve been receiving Billboard Magazine for the past month. The thing is, I never ordered it because its like $300 a year (and I ain’t got it!). So I called today (just to make sure they weren’t going to send me a nice little bill) and found out someone had compt’d the magazines for me. Go figure that I actually LOVE Billboard Mag. Cool right? Shout out to Billboard (or whoever was so kind as to order these magazines for me).
I decided to share a bit of my mag with you guys…
In recognition of the behind-the-scenes talent that affects the charts, Billboard salutes Black Music Month 2010 with profiles of 10 rising songwriters and producers:
Bama Boyz – The Bama Boyz have been producing since 2003 for Desinty’s Child, Solange Knowles and Mya, among others.
Jeff Bhasker – If you don’t know who Jeff Bhasker is yet, take a look at the liner notes of Kanye West’s 2008 album, “808s & Heartbreak”; Kid Cudi’d debut, “Man on the Moon: The End of Day”; and Jay-Z’s latest, “The Blue Print 3.”
Boi-1da – Boi-1da got his start a few years ago when he met Drake and worked on their first joint venture, “Do What You Do”, which appeared on Drake’s second mixtape, 2007′s “Comeback Season”.
Jay Fenix & Andrea Martin – Melanie Fiona loans her vocal prowess to the chart-topping track “It Kills Me,” but it was newbie producer Jay Fenix and veteran singer/songwriter and co-producer Andrea Martin who laid the foundation for the track.
Christopher ‘Drumma Boy’ Gholson – You know him from his work on T.I.’s multi-platinum “Paper Trail,” Gucci Mane’s No. 1 album “The State vs. Radric Davis” and the Grammy Award nominated “Put On” by Young Jeezy featuring Kanye West.
