🎚 2x Grammy Award Winning Music Producer (Erykah Badu) 👨🏾‍🏫 KSDJA School Of Music Production Instructor ⚛️ BLKSCNTST @blkscntst 🇯🇲 🇨🇺 ♐️ Birthplace: Brooklyn NYC Currently Residing in : Dallas, Tx “Insane, genius, mathematical, scientific” are only several words that illustrate the musical intellect that is Jah Born, world-known producer and “Sample Samurai”. The Dallas bred producer is not only responsible for stamping Dallas onto the map of musical hierarchy, he also planted the seed of “Neo Soul” into the music industry; therefore allowing Dallas to gain the respect of the industry’s A-list creative minds. At the age of 13, Jah Born started to construct beats learning from the the creative wisdom of Dallas legend DJ Baby G. After years of perfecting his talent, history was finally made in 1997 when the beat maker produced the track “On and On” for a local artist named Erykah Badu. The single would soon ignite the careers of the two close friends and label Badu “The Queen of Neo Soul.” In 1998, “On and On” earned the producer 2 Grammy Awards and went on to claim triple platinum status. In the song, Badu would spit the line, “Mad props to the god Jah Born,” which gained the Dallas-based producer household familiarity around the world. The success of the single was only the beginning for the young Super Producer. Jah Born would go on to produce multiple tracks with Badu including “And On” (Mama’s Gun), “Your Loving Me”, “Jump up in the Air & Stay There” (Erykah Badu / Lil’ Wayne) and RC & The Gritz featuring Erykah Badu “Leave Me Alone”. Over the span of his career, Jah has worked with numerous artists including Rza, Will Smith, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Raheem DeVaughn, Ice Cube, Scarface, Bilal, Paul Wall, Tela, MC Ren, D.O.C., Chino XL, Raskass, Rah Digga, and others..The list goes on to include many producers such as RC Williams, Symbolic One, Shaun Martin, Picnictyme, Mic Most, Mr. Lee, 9th Wonder, Tony CommonFolk Ballard and more.
