MEL STAXX: There’s no individual breakdown. Just my name MEL mixed with my brand/business STAK ONEZ ENT LLC…
A.D. THE GENERAL: What was the 1st record you produced for a major artist? And how did you feel about the actual final product?
MEL STAXX: My first record I produced for a major artists was “Increase the Gritty” by LLOYD BANKS. It was the first song on his “Cold Corner” mix tape. It dropped on a new years day morning. I remember being hung-over and my phone ringing off the hook. All my people were telling me they heardLLOYD BANKS on my beat. I felt good about the final product. He did his thang on that track and it helped open doors early in my career.
A.D. THE GENERAL: What inspired you to become a producer?
MEL STAXX: I’ve been inspired by music production all my life. I used to get albums and read the book inside just to see who the producers were. Back then producers like Timbo, The Neptunes, Swizz beats, Manny fresh, Dame Grease, Kanye West, Buckwild and many more played a big part of my inspiration to become a producer.
A.D. THE GENERAL: Who have you worked with thus far? And who haven’t you worked with that you would just love to work with?
A.D. THE GENERAL: Where can people listen and possibly get the opportunity to work with you?
