Focus has worked with J.Lo, Beyonce, The Game and others. Now, the former Aftermath producer is ready to take everything he learned from Dr. Dre to his own label, a.Fam Entertainment.

While he worked with Dre, he says he never tried to become a biter.

"Dre said he liked my style, the way I attacked the music." Focus said via statement.; "He heard East and west coast in my sound and he liked the way that I bridged the two. He said I was talented, so he never made me become a mini [Dr. Dre]. He always took me for who I was and let me be me."

Recently, he has linked up with Busta Rhymes to produce his hit "Respect My Conglomerate." Aside from this, he has also started working with Christina Aguilera, Bishop Lamont and Chino XL.

As he tries to head a label, he says he won't lose touch with production.

"This year I'm really showing people what I'm capable of. Ultimately, I don't want to be anything but a great producer."

The voices were true. Looks like the Math is going through a roster switch up.   Focus is dope, hope he still fucks with Bishop Lamont.  Maybe he'll work with Game more.

Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

Some of his material was super dope like Where I'm From but I can agree with those sentiments that upon listen it doesn't blow one away.  At the same time I'm rarely disappointed when I bump a Focus track.
