Boi-1da Talks Producer Management, Drake, Detox

November 18, 2009


Producer Boi-1da talks with Hip-Hop Canada about his work with Drake, producer management, current music setup (FL Studio 9 + laptop), and submitting tracks for Dr. Dre‘s Detox.

The manager generally gets 15% – they basically handle all the business, I handle all of the creative aspects.

I currently have no manager but I’m in talks with a very serious management company. I have Violator hollering at me, a bunch of people. Everybody wants to manage me; management is a touchy situation.

A couple of the greatest producers in the world use FL 9 though.
Its obviously 1 of the best things that can make beats.
some people only know FL from all those wack starters that crack it for free.

Funny how when you start making moves, people suddenly appear, wanting a piece of your pie.

It’s good to see a fellow Canadian making moves across the border, alongside other dope beathsmiths like Frank Dukes, Moss, and Marco Polo.

I think it’s important to also highlight the impact producers such as Saukrates, Classified, K-Os, and DJ Kemo, among others, have had in Canada. Although they might not have international recognition, they are highly respected up here, have influenced a generation of aspiring beatmakers, and continue to release dope records.

Coloring beating on your own previous surfaces prior to putting in paneling! Irrespective of just how watchful you’re while the installation of paneling, this indicates your old walls often peeks via. To scale back the particular graphic impact, merely calculate the spot that the solar panels match. Be sure you place down any tarp to defend your own flooring once you colour. It will maintain any kind of surplus colour away from your floors. A cheaper technique to accomplish this should be to use using newspaper publishers. Some other alternate options incorporate a drop material or even substantial plastic sheeting and color towels.
