While we were working on Alley Boy’s “Definition of F*ck Sh*t” mixtape (which is now considered a hood classic) I had the pleasure of meeting up with production duo The Colleagues. The Colleagues (who produced the soulful Alley Boy track “You Don’t Know”) have been hard at work knocking out tracks for various artist making a name for themselves.

There are hundreds of thousands of producers out there trying to make a name for themselves, and you have to do something a little extra ordinary to kind of put you ahead of the pack, L Don has done that. With producing Waka Flocka’s hit single “O Let’s Do It” he is definitely ahead of the pack. He not only has the entire Atlanta bopping, but also fans up top in NY got a chance to experience the Atlanta vibe once Diddy got on the remix along with Rick Ross. I got a chance to shoot the breeze real quick with the hit producer about production. Check out the interview with L Don below.
Brick Squad producer Southside is quickly making a name for himself. His hard hitting, menacing beats can be heard on albums and various mixtapes.

Check out my quick Q&A interview with him below.
