Multi-platinum producer Rick Rock may not have the marquee name like Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Kanye West and others, but he has been one of the most reliable and employed West Coast rap producers of his time. Born in Alabama, but based in California, Rick Rock began earning major credits in 1996 when he contributed tracks to 2Pacﾒs ﾓAll Eyez On Me” and E-40‘s ﾓHall Of Gameﾔ.
In the years to follow, heﾒs cranked out productions mainly for west coast rappers like Spice 1, and Xzibit; however, heﾒs also worked with mainstream artists like Will Smith, Fabolous, Method Man, Lisa Lopez, and Mariah Carey among others.
Dubcnn sat down with the west coast heavy-hitter for a little Q&A to discuss his upcoming project, ﾓRocketﾔ, producing for 2Pac, working with long-time collaborator E-40, possibly getting some work in with the 4-man collective – Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Royce Da 5’9 ﾖ known as Slaughterhouse, and much more.
