Archive for the “Production” Category


Here we go with hip-hop trailers again. This one is worth it, however (a lot have been lately…), as one of the most talented and unique producers/beatmakers in the game is getting ready to drop another album soon. The album, WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip, is out September 30.

For the first 12 years of my life, I lived right by this place. No wonder my apartment is littered with records and I got into producing. The video showcases the collection of Paul Mawhinney, who owns nearly 3 million records. He’s been trying to sell the collection for years, believed to be worth as much as $28.5 million. He recently tried to sell it on eBay for $3 million, with no success. I’m surprised no one’s stepped forward to buy it for that little. I know I would.

Too many people have died this month. Really talented people too.

Jerry Wexler was a music producer that was instrumental in bringing Stax Records to prominence and was a huge part of the blow-up of 60’s soul music. Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, and a lot of other giant names got their careers started under his guidance. Without his influence, hip-hop may have sounded a lot different (what would we sample?)

Go over to the LA Times if you want to read the obituary.
