Kick this one here for me and my DJ – Cha Cha Cha by MC Lyte

As a rapper the most important person is your DJ. My DJ is Drummer B. Drummer B is a producer, DJ, rapper, sound engineer, and one of my best friends in music. For over six years we’ve worked together making music, performing shows, and providing sound for events throughout Detroit.

Drummer B’s music production is generally based in two facets: tech hop and soul. Tech hop is a music genre and movement of blending techno/ electronic music and hip-hop. Techno music was birthed in Detroit by Kevin Saunderson, Mike Banks, Derrick May (my homie), and Juan Atkins. Tech Hop was made by Nick Speed and Drummer B (Nick Speed is another producer and close friend in music). The mesh of Hip-hop and Techno is a unique sound that’s still developing and building before us all. Notable artist performing the music are Danny Brown, Dope Head, and J Kidd. Drummer B’s love for Soul music is deep. His first album ‘Me and Marvin’ exclusively samples Marvin Gaye interviews, music, and artwork creating a classic. Here is a song we did together “Help Somebody” which was featured on my first album “Preaching to the Choir” as well.
