Producer Nottz Recruits Snoop Dogg, Asher Roth for Debut LP

Grammy award-winning producer Nottz—known for his work with such heavy-hitters as Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Scarface, Game and Lupe Fiasco— is gearing up to release his first album, You Need This Music, this fall.

The 14-track LP, which will showcase the beatsmith’s abilities on the mic, will feature guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Travis Barker, Royce da 5’9″, Little Brother, Asher Roth, Joell Ortiz, Dwele, Mayer Hawthorne and Bilal, among others.

The album is due out in stores October 12 on indie, Raw Koncept.

In related news, Nottz has just finished working on Rah Digga’s new disc, Classic, which is entirely produced by the Norfolk, Virginia-native. The former Flipsquad MC’s disc, also on Raw Concept, is set for a September 14 release. —Brooklyne Gipson

    Damn, I didn’t even know that cat was from my hometown…didn’t even know he rapped at that…

    Regardless, sounds like a dope line up. I wonder if he’ll have other producers on the project as well? Dude dope and all, but I don’t know if I can listen to a whole album with his production…
