Started in 2005-2006. Been doing it ever since.
I also am/was part of a now defunct band called Kida and the Next Episode. We did live gigs across the west. I'm the trumpet player in the band. Hopefully things can get worked out an we can get back together.
Timbaland ofcourse, The Neptunes, Tim & Bob, Bryan Micahel Cox (B. Cox), Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (by far the greatest producers of all time). That's as far as producers go.
Diane Warren (best songwriter alive), Ne-Yo, Babyface. That's as far as songwriters go.
2pac, Janet Jackson, Toni Braxton, Jon B., Donell Jones, Ciara, Cherish, Boby Valentino, Phyllis Hyman, Michael Jackson, Madonna,
Ableton & Reason and an ass load of samples, refills and VST's.
