Mannie Fresh is known to fans and throughout the music industry as the former in-house producer for Cash Money Records, artist, and entertainer, but he started out as one of the best DJs in New Orleans and he is now returning to his musical roots. The multiplatinum, Grammy-nominated producer responsible for creating hits (for Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Big Tymers, The Notorious B.I.G.) is now back to spinning full time, moving the crowd and DJing in clubs across the country. In between his DJing duties he is still making it happen in studios with Kanye, Bun B. Drake and the iconic Dr. Dre.
Craig "KLC" Lawson found fame as a member of No Limit Records' in-house production team, Beats by the Pound. KLC has worked with numerous recording artists and is credited for having discovered several prominent rappers, including Fiend, Mystikal and Soulja Slim. Along with Mannie Fresh, KLC is arguably one of the most important producers in southern rap. KLC, along with the combined production capacity of Beats by the pound, helped transform No Limit Records from a small shop into a southern powerhouse that has sold more than 50 million units.
DJ Toomp is a Grammy-winning, multi-platinum selling producer and songwriter has been an urban music trump card for over two decades. He has helped create, develop and expand Atlanta's southern hip-hop sound onto the national stage. Among the impressive list of artists who have benefited from Toomp's talents are Mariah Carey, Jay Z, Kanye West, TI, Ludacris, Young Jeezy,Rick Ross, and many others. Rolling Stone magazine named him one of the "Best Beatmakers." If DJ Toomp's past and present accomplishments are any signal of his future, the world is truly in store for more great music, hit records and innovative productions from this multifaceted musical genius.
