22 Rappers Who Sampled James Brown’s “Funky Drummer”

focus producer aftermath
Grammy Award Winning Producer Focus is a multi-faceted beat-maker who has transcended the essence of music with his seamless productions. After being enshrined in the history books for his Grammy-caliber production on Beyonce’s critically acclaimed album Dangerously In Love, Focus continued to prove his credentials into hip-hop. By teaming up with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, Focus showed that whether he dabbled on the pop scene or the rap scene, he had the capabilities to stand with any producer on any day. His production resume includes work with Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Christina Aguilera in addition to dishing out beats for 50 Cent, Game, Busta Rhymes, Slaughterhouse, ScHoolboy Q and more.

As you can see, Focus isn’t a one trick pony. The producer’s immaculate body of work has earned himself countless phone calls from artists dying to tag their vocals over his beats. The producer sat down with us to break down the origin of some his more notable rap records and his overall score on the totality of the song as a whole. Hate it or love it, you have to respect his conglomerate. —Carl Lamarre
