It’s mostly the voice that lifts you up? You know what, scrap that. From Timbaland to J Dilla, Neptunes to Just Blaze, hip hop beatmakers have long been pushing the boundaries of contemporary pop music. The past few years have seen the rise of a whole new generation of producers who made us love radio again. This is why we invited some of today’s most in-demand hitmakers to swap the studio for the stage for one night only. Production heavyweights like longtime Drake collaborator Boi-1da, the main man behind Chicago’s drill rap sound, Young Chop (Chief Keef, Pusha T), and ratchet trailblazer DJ Mustard (Tyga, 2 Chainz) will exclusively reinterpret their biggest tracks live on stage. Other producers set to perform include J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rick Ross, Nas), Bangladesh (Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj), Drumma Boy (Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy), and the great man Mannie Fresh straight outta Nawlins.
The night is presented in association with The Fader who regularly profile the most exciting rap and R&B producers in their “Beat Construction” column.
