T.H.C. - Your Hip Hop Fix
Mr. DJ is a producer’s producer. An Atlanta legend, he’s a member of the Dungeon Family and the unsung hero responsible for creating some of Outkast’s greatest tracks. Credited individually for classics like “Elevators,” and “Da Art of Storytellin,'” he eventually linked with Big Boi and Andre 3000, forming like Voltron to make up the production team Earthtone III. Besides Outkast, he’s also produced music for Lenny Kravitz, Bubba Sparxxx, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike and 8Ball & MJG, amongst many others.
For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, Mr. DJ selected Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall,” J Dilla’s “Donuts,” and a Stones Throw compilation “The Buzz.” Two modern day hip hop records is definitely not something he was expecting to cop, out of the norm compared to previous pickings. From there, we headed to the legendary Stankonia Studios to see what he chopped up.
