Chicago Producer 808 On Da Track Inspired By Music

The Golden era of Chicago Hip Hop is here. Chicago’s burgeoning Hip Hop scene is getting much recognition in this current era due in part to the advent of social media.

Chiraq MCs are receiving praise for using their lyricism to give listeners a realistic look at their culture and environment.

But these artists can’t receive all of the credit. The production of a track is just as important as the artist.

Producer 808 On Da Track, born Matthew Robinson, is one such producer making a name for himself on the underground music scene.

808 found his producer name fitting because of his hard-hitting sound.

“People always told me my bass went hard,” he said.

808 describes his production as “hard,” but also “very emotional.”

The 18-year-old beat maker has already worked with several notable artists, including Chief Keef, Soulja Boy, Fredo Santana, Fat Trel, Gino Marley and Bop King Lil Kemo.

808 regards Soulja Boy’s “Turnin Up” as his favorite production to date.

808’s production has generated well over one million streams on the net.

This is impressive despite the fact 808 has only been producing for only a “year and a half.”

The Chicago native is perfecting his production skills through Fruity Loops music editing software and YouTube tutorials.

808 draws musical inspiration from late music icons Tupac Shakur and Marvin Gaye.

His current favorite producers include “Metro Boomin, Lex Luger & South Side.”

808 is honored to have a key role in the Chicago Hip Hop movement.

“I think it’s great because this is where I grew up,” he said. “It’s good to know people from where I grew up stop standing on a corner and do something so inspiring as music.”
