Tha Chill, as an artist and producer, has worked with many of rap’s biggest stars like MC Ren, MC Eiht, with whom he co-founded Compton’s Most Wanted, Snoop Dogg, Redman, Battlecat, Nate Dogg, King T, Kurupt, Warren G, and others.
Getting started with his C.M.W. crew of MC Eiht, Boom Bam, DJ Mike T, and DJ Ant Capone, Tha Chill began selling records and producing hits before most of you favorite rappers or producers. His work with C.M.W. and MC Eiht is well-documented, but it’s his solo work and productions out side of that is what has been underrated. Some of these masterpieces include “Shot Caller” for MC Ren’s last Ruthless Records album, Ruthless For Life in 1998, “Run On Up” and “Ups & Downs” for Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and Nate Dogg on the highly-anticipated 213 project in 2004, and “Get’em” on Redman’s Red Gone Wild: Thee Album in 2007 to name a few.
Happy Birthday, Tha Chill!
