Behind an amazing artist and their music is a phenomenal team. It takes talent to put together a nice beat, good lyrics or content and nice flow. Producer, Andre “Bizness Boi” Robertson is an incredible asset to have for a hit song!
The 28-year-old, Little Rock, Arkansas bred began producing in 2001. In 2006, Bizness Boi was making beats with a digital audio workstation, “I started making beats on FL Studio. My bro Prep Bijan Hughes loaded me with Drums & Sounds and the rest is history.”
Biz has many different aspects that allow him to bring his ideas to life, starting with having many sounds. “I have thousands and thousands of sounds. I’ll sit at my desk and scroll through different ones until that “one” sound catches my attention. I usually start my beats off with melodies and/or chords. Then I start to build the drums and percussion around it,” says Robertson. He also has a love for mixing genres, how artist and producers can combine genres and sounds, creating a master piece.
As a producer, Robertson helps create the music we love and then getting the pleasure to enjoy something he played a major part in. ” It’s crazy creating records and then watch it spread all over the world. I put my heart and soul into my music because it allows me to change people’s lives and perspective on life itself.” He’s had people tell him what an inspiration he is and gave them a push to achieve their dreams no matter the circumstances.
These past couple of weeks, the smooth R&B vocalist, PartyNextDoor has been dropping some major hits for his fans. Guess who is one of the men behind the hits? Mr. Bizness Boi, himself! He’s behind the production of “Don’t Know How,” Don’t Do it For You Know More and “Cuffed Up” ft. Quavo. They were able to put the records together a week or so before they dropped, now that’s what you call work.
Bizness Boi has also worked with Ye Ali, Charlie $tardom, Eric Bellinger, Jake N Papa, Daniel Church and many more, he considers them all the future of music. He also discusses who he’d love to work with in the future, “I have this crazy record that I see Jay Z & Adele on that I produced. My sis INK wrote to it and it’s a big record! I also want to work with Kanye West, Usher, Justin Bieber, & Drake,” Hey, Jay and Adele, contact the Biz!
One thing that makes Biz feel as if he stands out from others is his forever-like sound, ” I’m aiming at being timeless and not being the “In The Now” producer. I have a GREAT team around me that helps my visions come to life! I have guitarist, keyboardist, Saxophone player, great writers and so on. Even tho there’s a lot of technology out here, I’m still focused on an organic sound full of melodies, different rhythms and new percussion.”
Bizness Boi is working on a production tape with a few surprises and dope artist. He just finished Ye Ali’s ‘TRAPHOUSEJODECI‘ album that will be dropping soon. His artist, Charlie $tardom will be releasing in September 2016, “he’s gonna change the world with his music,” says Robertson.
There have been sometimes the young producer doubted himself, but he has a circle of support surrounding him, “I know to really be successful and win in life, you have to be consistent and persistent. My family and friends inspire me to be great too. It’s bigger than just me.”
He moves forward in life and motivated by a quote from our President, Barack Obama, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
Artists wouldn’t have a complete piece of art without the important people who aren’t always in the spotlight. We must always remember, it takes a team and hardwork to create something unforgettable and timeless. Music is art that can put us into multiple feelings from good to bad with just one song, album or mixtape. To create all these feelings it takes content and good producing. From background singers, songwriters, producers to artists, you all are appreciated!
