Nottz To Release Solo Debut, You Need This Music, On Raw Koncept This October
Grammy-Winning Producer Goes Solo For Debut Album With Appearances From Snoop Dogg, Asher Roth, Bilal, Travis Barker, And More
(September 9, 2010 – Brooklyn, NY) Grammy Award-winning producer Nottz is excited to announce the release of his solo debut, You Need This Music. The album will be released on October 12th via up and coming label, Raw Koncept, and will introduce fans to a new facet of Nottz, as he handles a bulk of the rhyming on the album, in addition to producing the full project.
Nottz is a fixture among the industries heaviest-hitting producers; he secured his first placements on Busta Rhymes’ best-selling album E.L.E in 1998 and has maintained a strong presence since. Having since collaborated with industry luminaries such as Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Notorious B.I.G, 50 Cent, The Game, Little Brother, Royce Da 5'9 and more, Nottz has amassed an enviable and growing resume. Though he has recently dedicated himself to mastering cadence and lyrical structure for You Need This Music, he has still managed to place compositions on upcoming projects by the likes of Rah Digga, Scarface, and the elusive Dr. Dre, who’s Detox boasts Nottz among a very select few guests.
On You Need This Music, Nottz pulls no punches, charging out of the gate over a cavalcade of snares hammered out by Travis Barker on the album intro. Handling the entirety of the album's production on his trusy ASR-10, his lyrics compliment each song of the 14-track marathon, a pace kept by energetic guest verses from Black Milk, Little Brother, Asher Roth and Joel Ortiz and tempered by soulful hooks from Dwele, Mayer Hawthorne, Bilal and Colin Munroe.

Since 1998, some of Virginia-born Nottz' biggest records to date include, Snoop Dogg Ft R.Kelly "That's That," Kanye West Ft Lil Wayne "Barry Bonds," and Scarface Ft Trey Songz "Girl You Know." Adding to those credits, he has collaborated with artists such as Notorious B.I.G, Swizz Beats, The Game, 50 Cent, Dwele, and Murs just to name a few. These past few years he has built fan base and earned his stripes as a respected and talented artist and, this October 2010, he is set to release his self-produced debut, You Need This Music. All of Nottz' hard work has been, in his words, "to take over the world one day with my sound.
