You guys might have not heard of the young producer "Stackboy Twaun", but I'm sure you have heard his music before. His biggest credit came this year when he produced the Migos smash single "Fight Night". Other credits include Young Scooter, Jose Guapo and a handful of other tracks he produced for Migos. We asked Twan to answer a couple of short questions for us so that when the next you hear about him you know who he his.
What do you like most about producing?
I love working with the artist to come up with new sounds and developing new innovative waves of music.From my experience, that’s how you make hit records, by heading the trend and not following it.
Who are your biggest supporters of what you do?
My mama gotta be my # 1 supporter she always tell me how proud she is of me.. I got my whole family behind me and that means a lot to me.. If I it wasn't for my family and the handful of friends pushing me to strive for better I don't know where I would be.
If you weren't a producer what would be your line of work?
I would be clocked in at a 9-5 working hard labor if it wasn't for producing. I come from a line of honest hard work, even though I’m blessed to not have to clock in everyday and work for someone else, I still approach my craft and career with the same hard work and dedication as I would if I had a regular job.
Who are the people and artist that push and inspire you to create? and are you able to deal with their honesty and criticism?
I came up listening to Gucci Mane, Tracy T, T.i, but when a Zaytoven beat comes on with one of these artists, I always listen closely to hear the funky noises and instruments in the beats. I can deal with criticism, because I believe it only makes you stronger.
What game sport,board or electronic would you kick some serious ass on. What celebrity would you call out?
I’ll call out Zaytoven on a Game Of Pool!! Lol!
Who do you find yourself competing against in this industry? and who do you admire in this industry?
I don't find myself competing with anybody if anything I'm still learning, everyday is a challenge to get better and to make that next hit record.
Who has been the worst to work with? and who do you look forward to working with? and who is that next person that we should check for?
I haven't worked with one bad artist.. Every artist I have worked with we click up right then and there never been a salty moment when I'm with the Artist. I look forward to working with Kevin Gates, his people have been reaching out, so I’m looking forward to create a hit with him.
Has there been any groupy experience that has been rewarding ,weird or scary?
No answer :)
How do you prepare yourself for a project and what is your gear of choice?
Really, I just bump some old school music to get in the right head space, and relax. I typically use Fl Studio as a starting point and add different elements as I go along.
What words of encouragement do you have for inspiring producers?
Just keep working Grind for what u want in life, Keep God first and everything will fall in place.. Just got to have faith and believe in yourself!
In Closing: whats up next for you? who would you like to shout out to?
I'm still working trying to get placements with different artist I'm open to everybody.. S/O to the man above S/O To my Mama and my whole family.. S/O to my Manager Leon (@Just_Book) S/O to all the artists that I've worked with.. Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Scooter, Jose Guapo, Young Thug, Shawty Lo, My Stackboy Team, Etc. to
