My name is Eric Wilson and I'm a popular producer and emcee from Cleveland, Ohio. I have a company called Scratchpaper Productions with some hot artists signed. I'm very known for hard-ass beats and songs and I showcase all of that on every track I make. I'm compared to some top producers in the industry, so I want yall to listen and email me with your comments (good or bad).
Band/artist history
Eric Wilson: formerly signed to a prominent indie label as part of the group Bar-Nun. Have worked with, performed with, or produced for Master P, Joe Budden, Keith Murray, Luke, UGK, Big Rube of Dungeon Family, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Devin The Dude, and many others.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I perform a lot. Performing feels just as good as being in the studio and there hasn't been a show that I haven't pleased the crowd at yet. I have a lot of energy onstage and I usually can draw the crowd in quickly, even if they have never heard or seen me before. I play at different clubs and venues most of of the time in the Cleveland area, but, I have done some shows in other places besides Ohio. As far as special moments.. they are all special.
Your musical influences
Early jazz musicians inspired me a lot, such as my father (Eric C. Wilson, Sr.), Grover Washington Jr, Quincy Jones, and Herbie Hancock. Then, it was Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Biggie, Kool G Rap, Treach, Tupac, Lord Finesse, Kurupt, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, and Jay-Z. As a producer I would have to say Prince, Marley Mall, Dr. Dre, Trackmasters, Easy Mo Bee, and DJ Quik. Currently I'm feeling Aftermath Entertainment as a whole.
What equipment do you use?
Currently, I use the Triton, Roland XV-5080, Yamaha Motif (rack), Mo Phat, JV-1080, MPC 4000, ASR-10, QSR, Reasons, amd DP4. I use a Rhodes NTK microphone. Lately, I have been usuing Reasons a lot.
