Hip hop changes quite often. It’s sometimes incredibly hard to get a grasp o the current state of things due to its constant shapeshifting and the proliferation of new voices and trends. This, of course, is a great thing. The genre is alive and kicking, and we as listeners get to reap the benefits. Yet, the inflation of new music makes it hard for both seasoned hip hop veterans and rookie beginners to get a foot in; there’s just so much to choose from. So, to all hip hop heads desperately searching for their new favorite producer, here are some that you should definitely check out.
Renowned for his squeaky-clean, fantastically ethereal, animated Toys-R’-Us toys production style, Pierre’s been making waves ever for quite some time now. His signature sound has practically built up artists like Playboi Carti, a frequent collaborator of his. Yet Pierre’s collaborated with other household names such as Kanye West, Young Nudy, Travis Scott, and many others. Pierre has also begun to gain a modest following for his own rap career which he has been cultivating gradually for a few years now. It’s hard not to think of Kanye West’s own transition from producer to superstar rapper. Whether Pierre will enjoy the same amount of success as a rapper is yet to be seen.
