Grammy-winning, multi-platinum selling
producer and songwriter, DJ Toomp has been an urban music trump card for over two decades. He has helped create, develop and
expand Atlanta's Southern Hip Hop sound onto the national stage.
At the age when most teenage boys are interested in fashion, sports, and girls, DJ Toomp was handling
his business, and cut his first record/hit song with Raheem the Dream in 1985. A prodigy of his father; the lead singer for
the group The MVP's, who taught him how to harmonize at the age of six - it's no wonder that music is truly in his genes.
Right out of high school, DJ Toomp hit
the music scene spinning the sounds that resonated in his soul. It was only a matter of time that this young and energetic
mastermind would come full circle of his first love, making and creating music.
"I like producing artists," Toomp says. "I like for them to come to my studio and
just vibe, more than just take a track and put something to it... I'd rather work with an artist so that things don't go wrong
along the way."
impressive list of artists who have benefited from Toomp's talents are Mariah Carey, Jay Z,
Kanye West, TI, Ludacris, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross,
and many others. Recently named one of the "Best Beatmakers" by Rolling Stone Magazine,
Toomp oversees three ventures: Zone Boy Productions, Toompstone Publishing, and NZone Entertainment, and is currently grooming
a stable of emerging talented producers, songwriters, and artists.
Toomp humbly adds, "I've done well in this industry...I have these eyes and ears, and I know
what it takes to be successful in this business... I want to win."
If DJ Toomp's past and present accomplishments are any signal of his future, the world is truly in
store for more great music, hit records, and innovative productions from this multifaceted musical genius.
