About Me

 I'm an independent hip hop producer highly influenced by the golden era of rap and modern greats like The Alchemist, DJ Premier, J Dilla, Slug, Clams Casino and so many more that I can't name here.

I'm from the Midwest and good beats are like a good hotdish. Individually, all the elements don't seem like much, but once you find the drums, samples, accents and effects that come together in a cohesive project, it's a beautiful thing.

I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to collaborate with other artists. I'm particularly interested in working with underground rappers who share my love of all genres of music. If you're a rapper or musician who's looking for a producer who can help you create your next underground classic, then I'm your guy.

Hope you enjoy my beats and hope to collab soon.
