From Blush Public Relations:

For Immediate Release

Super producer Focus... leaves Aftermath after many years of service to Dr. Dre to pursue his dream of owning his own production label a.Fam Entertainment. Focus'... work has since appeared on The Game’s multi-platinum The Documentary (“Where I’m From”), 112’s Pleasure & Pain (single “U Already Know”), Beyonce’s multi-platinum Dangerously In Love (“Yes”) and J.Lo’s platinum-plus This Is Me…Then (“Dear Ben”), among others.

Focus... says he has learned a lot from his mentor Dr Dre. When asked what was it that Dre saw in him that made him take him under his wing Focus... says: “Dre said he liked my style, the way I attacked the music.” Focus... recalls,  “He heard East and West Coast in my sound and he liked the way that I bridged the two. He said I was talented, so he never made me become a mini him, (Dr. Dre). He always took me for who I was and let me be me.”

From then on Focus... never looked back, cranking out tracks for 50 Cent, and other artist affiliated with Aftermath. Focus... has recently produced the single “Respect My Conglomerate" for Busta Rhymes featuring Lil' Wayne and Jadakiss. Yes it was fully produced by Focus... himself and now as one of music’s hottest producers, Focus... has already worked with Girlicious (Mirror), Marsha Ambrosius (Yours Truly-mixtape), Chino XL (The Secret, RICANstruction), Christina Aguilera, and Bishop Lamont just to name a few.  He also co-executive produced the album from 2Pac’s Outlawz, Outlaw 4 Life 2005 A.P., produced several tracks on Sway & King Tech Presents Back 2 Basics (including work with Chino XL and Kam) and is shopping his artists while branding his label, a.Fam Entertainment.

Focus... plans to make his impression felt in the years to come. “This year I’m really showing people what I’m capable of,” Focus...says.  “Ultimately, I don’t want to be anything but a great producer."

Be on the look out for some of the most talented artist coming from out of Afam, with a well rounded producer like Focus the team is sure to win.
