We want to give shine to the producers that are not in the spotlight as much, but have made great contributions to hip hop.
Our first producer spotlight goes to Nottz aka Nottz Raw, who is truly the essence of hip hop production. Nottz is from Norfolk, VA (VA is arguably the home of the best producers) and has produced for some of the greats including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, The Notorious B.I.G., Scarface and Busta Rhymes.
It's always great to see a DJ work with an artist and help each other succeed. Generally, the DJ is to play the records for the people and the artist is to simply create. When you blend the world's together, magic happens. DJ Caesar and Hus KingPin has done such by blessing the world with their EP entitled "The Coming Of Wave".
One thing we can say about Griselda Records is this is one of the best grassroots movements seen in a while. From the music, merch and lifestyle, these guys got it! We respect it and salute the Almighty!!! Bliiiitttt!!!!!
