    Whenever anyone mentions soulful loops and hard drums, a number of producers come to mind. However, only a few are able to take a sample and create an entirely different vibe. Legends like DJ Premier, Buckwild and Large Professor come to mind. However, if Ayatollah is not on that same list, something is wrong.

    Beating the odds has always come naturally to Shawty Lo. In 2005, just as things were starting to come together for rapper who came up in Bankhead’s notorious Bowen Homes projects, he was facing 20-40 years on drug charges. Although he would only serve one year, in the time he was away, the group that he had assembled, D4L, would take over the airwaves with their commercial smash “Laffy Taffy.”

    It’s never easy making a name for yourself as a producer in 2010. As it becomes easier and easier to make beats, there are more fans than ever clicking on keys in Fruity Loops in the hopes of creating the next sonic trend. As a result of hip-hop “producers” being at an all-time high, it’s understandable why an experienced ear, like Duke Da God, the man behind the Diplomat movement, would be a bit jaded when a new jack from the smallest state in the U.S. approaches him.

    If you were alive in 2003, then there is a very, very good chance that you’ve heard the Heatmakerz’ trademark sped-up soul samples coupled with frenetic drums that threatened to blast through your speakers on the Diplomats’ debut album Diplomatic Immunity. Rsonist and partner Thrilla’s meteoric rise to fame after producing club-ready, street-inspired anthems “I’m Ready” and “Dipset Anthem” was both a gift and a curse. The Heatmakerz quickly became a household name amongst diehard fans looking to get an adrenaline boost.

    Armed with a smooth-as-butter flow coupled with a song-writing ability well beyond his years, the 25 year-old Leimert Park native burst onto the scene in 2008 with his debut mixtape 25th Hour, which was an instant and unexpected success for the Left Coaster. Dom quickly followed up with two new projects in 2009, Future Street/Drug Sounds and Best After Bobby.

    Vinnie Paz, the unofficial leader of underground supergroup Army of the Pharaohs, has never been one to mince words. Thus, when he tells you that your bitch-like characteristics make you one of Solomon’s 700 wives and that you should start digging your own grave, well, you’re probably better off not questioning it, because questioning the chaos that rises and rises until it overflows, only to repeat the cycle again in the next 30 seconds, would just be a waste of effort.
