DJ Skizz has spent the last 15+ years producing bangers for the likes of Freeway, Sean Price, Roc Marciano, Evidence, Conway the Machine, Your Old Droog, Big Twins, Rah Digga, VInnie Paz, and many more. He is part of the Drum Majors production collective with Marco Polo and Shylow. For Heavy Artillery Vol. 1, Skizz spent months combing through his extensive vinyl collection and MPC discs to find the hardest drums and sounds in his stash, many of which he used in previously released songs.
Lil’ Fame of M.O.P has been producing under his alias Fizzy Womack for many years. He has produced for artists such as M.O.P, AZ, Cormega, Styles P, Wu Tang, and many more. Most recently Fizzy produced the critically acclaimed posthumous album for Sean Price, “The Price of Fame.” Besides holding it down behind the boards as Fizzy Womack, many consider Lil’ Fame (and his partner Billy Danze of M.O.P ) to be the king of the ad-libs. Over the years numerous producers such as J Dilla, Madlib, DJ Premier have sampled Fame’s vocals and used them in their beats to add that unique energy and funkiness that only Fame can bring. With Heavy Artillery Vol. 1, beatmakers now have a folder of 109 vocal one-shots and stacked phrases to use in their beats.
