Despite being an acclaimed music executive and producer, Salaam Remi is one of the humblest people you will ever meet. The Queens native’s astonishing discography that includes equal parts scrunchy face, boom bap and smoothly sweeping production for the likes of the Fugees, Amy Winehouse and Nas, to name a few, makes his nonchalance about […]
A full decade has passed since the late Amy Winehouse‘s debut LP Frank was first released in the UK/Europe. When Winehouse first appeared she was considered an extremely young Nu Jazz vocalist devoid of the social grace and seasoning that most other UK artists had who were considered for a huge push overseas.
Salaam Remi is a world renowned producer and the Queens native dropped a new album, One: In The Chamber, today. If you’r the type that needs a test drive, you can get a listen to the new project from the Grammy nominated producer and executive right here.

Nas and Amy Winehouse had more in common than just making great music, they also share the same birthday—September 14. The British singer was a notable fan of God’s Son penning the track “Me and Mr. Jones,” when her boyfriend refused to take her to a Nas concert. The duo went on to collaborate on […]
If you are scratching and itching for Nas‘ new album, Life Is Good, this song isn’t going to do anything to quell your anticipation.

It’s been less than a week since Nas released the No I.D. and Salaam Remi-produced “Accident Murderers” to much praise. Now, Ryan Leslie gives the track his stamp of approval by contributing a verse of his own. R. Les seems to be very adamant toward MC’ing, rather than the R&B grooves we’ve come to know him for.
Nelly Furtado and Nas make musical magic on her new track “Something,” off her forthcoming release, The Spirit Indestructible. It’s been a while since the Canadian songstress dropped new music, but she finds her seductive footing on the Salaam Remi-produced beat, as if no time has passed. Meanwhile, Nasty Nas has been dropping one solid […]
