Easy Mo Bee (Oct 20)
Easy Mo Bee is a hip-hop legend in every sense of the word. He got his start producing for Big Daddy Kane, and then produced 10 tracks on The Genius’ debut LP Words From The Genius (before he was The Gza and before he was in Wu-Tang) . He got in good with Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records camp, which led to a working relationship with Puff Daddy.
When Puff split Uptown and formed Bad Boy, Mo produced the bulk of the label’s early material, most notably the first singles from both Craig Mack (“Flava In Ya Ear”) and the Notorious B.I.G. (“Party and Bullshit”). During this time, he also worked with 2Pac, producing the original version of “Running,” which featured Pac and Biggie. He worked with Tupac on his 1995 LP, Me Against The World, before putting in more work with B.I.G. on both Ready to Die and Life After Death.
Jazz pioneer Miles Davis approached the young producer in 1992 to help fuse jazz and hip-hop on his last studio album, the posthumously released Doo-Bop, and other iconic artists in his production roster include Lost Boyz, Busta Rhymes, Das EFX, Wu-Tang, Mos Def, Alicia Keys, and many many more.
