Exclusive Interview with HELL RAZAH @razah_rubiez GGO ALBUM PRODUCER @drgproductionz
QTP: Wingz Up Dr. G!
Dr G: Wingz up and thanks for the love and support .
QTP: For those that don’t know, please introduce yourself, tell them where you’re from and what it is that you do.
Dr G: I am Dr G from u.k manchester been in the game 15 years working as a dj and a street rep for sony music and then for def jam/island for a good friend dj semtex (bbc 1xtra/defjam uk) . but now i am a full time hip hop producer .
QTP: Personally, I am a HUGE fan of your beats as you are well aware … LOL When did you start producing?
Dr G: Thank you and i greatful from the chance for u even to hear them. But yeah started producing 2002 by sitting and watching my homie at the time making beats.At the time i was starting too rap a bit after a about 5 years of djing around country i wanted to do more and never felt like djing was a nuff.So me and my homie formed a crew and started making tracks and putting out small ep’s in my city .People was instreaded because i was kinda already known from the djing and the street work too .But after making a solo album on my own in 2008 i was more into the beats then the rap side of things.lol. I have a very angry loud rap flow so some people love it some hated it . But always got good feback on the beats. At the time myspace was a big site and helpful so i used that to help promote my 2008 release “LAST DAYZ”.
QTP: When did you meet Razah and how did you become involved with Ghetto Govt?
Dr G: Well i did get hell razah on a joint back in the day from my homie St laz (brownsville pottersfield) i was sending laz mad beats in the days of myspace and he was laceimg my beats and sending them back with some dope features too (Agallah/Boot camp click/shazbazz the disicple/Hell razah) that’s how we meet .But a few years after on sound cloud razah hit us on a comment.So i hit him back asking if he was cool with me sending him some jointz over.Some i just made him some fresh shit.Plus lets not forget that when i was young and listening to hiphop hell razah is apart of my youth because i was into any thing wu tang so i never missed a album .
QTP: Who else have you worked with or are you working with right now?
Dr G: I ‘ve worked with a good few .Got some links from st laz he helped me out a lot as far as getting my joints on hot 97 and power 105 plus features. I also produced a joint for shyheim back in 2008 that i on the album last dayz i mention earlier . So ever since then i did joints with likes of Canibus/Inspectah deck/D 12/Hussein fatal/Outlawz/Rap p from queens/Twisted insane/Outterspace/Yukmouth/Kool g rap many more from different states in america. But uk wise i did with some of the best out here inculeding shotty horroh who is a real big rap and battler artists.
QTP: Dr. G, the Ghetto Govt album is mostly produced by you and I think it’s fair to say it’s one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. This album is featuring Hell Razah himself, his artists on Hell Razah Music, Inc. as well as various GGO artists. Are you excited to be the main producer involved with this project?
Dr G: Most def . I am exclusive producer on that joint so yeah i excited. But razah is so underatted if u ask me. He still keep it real with that deep 90’s era of hiphop vibe.And is a great lyricest And he is a man with a good heart too. But people might not see what he is tryin to do with GGO but it covers all side of the world.Due time it will be a take over movement.
QTP: What are you currently working on music and otherwise? Any upcoming projects to watch out for?
Dr G: A producer album similar to what alchemist/maro polo/pete rock does .All american artists my production. The theme is like britton and u.s coming together to form a coalition that’s the name i am calling the album COALITION (Nov 2013 release).Aiming to get some of the biggest names in hip hop on it with a lot of the underground up and coming artists too.
QTP: Is there any artists that you haven’t worked with that you’d like to work with in the near future?
Dr G: Oh fo sho mainly artist that i was listenig too when i was young (Onyx/smif and western/wu tang/black moon/nine. many more )and fan of hip hop .As i am still a fan i still bump mad albums and people must think just because u are artist u can’t be a fanof other hiphop acts .But people need to go back to being fans. But artist i would love to work with would be :Redman /reks/saigon/prodigy/tragedy kadafi/ra the rugged man/Roc Marciano/Beanie Sigel/Ill bill.
QTP: How can folks find you via social media or get in contact with you?
Dr G: Well facebook (dr g gareth) is a good because i am always online there . Soundcloud (Dr G manchester) Twitter (Dr G PRODUCTIONZ) And email firstname.lastname@example.org
QTP: Anything else you want to add?
Dr G: Thank you and keep ya ear open for that GGO album i am exclusive producer on that joint and also my producer album THE COALITION 2013 out in late november . But got to big up the queen and razah and the family GGO and everyone has helped me on my journey. Shouts to slim and dj semtex
