Chester, Pennsylvania native Jahlil Beats is one of the hottest producers in the game. You name it, he produced it: Bobby Schmurda’s “Hot N***a” Meek Mill’s “Monster,” and Meek Mill’s hit “Ima Boss” with Rick Ross are most notable.
But who could forget his catchy ‘Jahlil Beats Holla At Me’ voiceover courtesy of his niece?
Dude is official!
But hey, speaking of Meek Mill, Jahlil Beats has tons of work with Philadelphia’s finest!
Appearing on Scoop B Radio, Jahlil Beats broke down his connection to Meek Milly. Apparently, the two met on Myspace!

“Um, I met Meek off of Myspace,” Jahlil Beats told me on Scoop B Radio. “He was working with my cousin, like my cousin was like on fire he’s a producer, he was like on fire locally. So he had all these like little local hits on the radio shout outs to Cosmic Kev.”
For those not familiar with the Philadelphia landscape, Cosmic Kev is one of the biggest DJs in Philadelphia and Power 99 personality.
Jahil Beats added:
“Meek just blew off of this record called “In My Bag. Meek had the f*****g city on fire so I just hit him up on Myspace. He was like: “Yo send me some beats.” I sent him three beats and all three of them went on his next mixtape called “Flamers 2” and that shit had the city on fire. There wasn’t a car that drove past that wasn’t banging Meek Mill. That’s pretty much how it started. We had a record called “So Fly” that was spinning on the radio like crazy and he got locked up like right after, maybe before the record even dropped he got locked up. And then they put the record out and Cosmic Kev was spinning it, holding him down and then one day, he just reached out to me while he was in jail, we would talk all the time. He was like: ‘Yo when I get out,’ he was in for like 8, 9 months so when he got out, he kept his word and while he was on house arrest I think he was at his aunt house; we would go into the studio from like; they would let him go to the studio so we would go to the studio from like 12 to 12. Just in the studio banging s**t out, you know what I mean? That’s pretty much how we got real tight.”
The rest is history.
