In the last 5 years there hasn’t been too many impressive producers in hip-hop/rap that I considered to have worth the mentions. Lets face it producers now a days are being pumped out like most of these instant rappers,who’s life span is usaully six to nine months, luckily a year. The Justice League are those dudes that have defied the meaning of Rap life, they are Crème de la Crop in modern production. Their credits spand from Jeezy to Mary J to Nas and they are synonymous with crafting the very sophisticated and intricate sound scape of Rick Ross’s music. That orchestrated Maybach sound! I’ve been a fan for some time. Hailing from Tampa Florida the League gave us a lil insight on their thoughts of music and life.
Q: Who are yall and what do yall do?
We are the Grammy award winning J.u.s.t.i.c.e League, musical producers composed of 3 members (Colione, Rook, and Kenny.)
With production with artists like Rick Ross, Nas, and Drake.
Q: Name 3 tracks that inspired yall.
Man, trying to select just one record that inspired us is pretty tough there is a lot of great music out there, past and present, but here are a few names that come to mind:
Colione answered: Dr Dre- Nothing but a G thang
Rook answered: Gang Starr
Kenny answered: Radiohead – Kid A Album
Q: What would be your advice to up and coming creatives?
Stay focused and work harder than anyone around you. If you are making 1 beat a day, start making 3. Keep working and never lose your love of the music. It’s very easy to get lost in the business aspect and that’s when you stop having fun. Never stop having fun and always try to out do the last record you created.
Q: What is your favorite piece of gear?
We use a lot of amazing gear but some that stick out that we use on a regular basis would have to be:
Colione answered: Universal Audio Plugins
Kenny answered: Logic Pro
Rook answered: Munitio Pro40 headphones
Q: What can we expect next from yall?
We have 2 new artists that will be releasing this year and we are real excited about that. We’ve been working on a few products for our fans, and of course continuing to make amazing music with more prolific artists.
