Multi-platinum producer E-A Ski was crowned “Producer of the Decade” during the 5th Annual West Coast Hip-Hop Awards show over the weekend.
For those who don’t know, in the early 90’s E-A Ski helped Master P get his deal when he was based in Richmond, California. He served as both a rapper and producer for the No Limit label, producing on Master P�s early records and also releasing some of his own material like “1 Step Ahead of Y’all” though In-A-Minute/No Limit in 1992.
Mr. Ski also produced �187 He Wrote� for Spice 1, which peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 10 on the Billboard 200 in 1993. Spice and Ski would connect again for �Trigga Gots No Heart� featured in the Menace II Society film, as well being released as a single (with video) for promotion for the now classic Hughes Brothers film. The Menace II Society soundtrack is a platinum-certified album.
