Since the beginning of Hip-Hop, women have gotten very little credit for their roles and contributions to the art form. We often hear stories of how femcee’s have taken the backseat, in order to stroke the male ego. Although a few women in hip-hop have broken through the barriers, there are a lot more women in hip-hop who’s legacies go unnoticed. This is especially true when it comes to production. In a male dominated field of producing, women are starting to emerge and putting their stamp on hip-hop production. I caught up with PHB, cleverly known as ProducHerBeats who is a beatmaker-producer residing in Brooklyn, NY. Her resumé of artist that she has worked with is impressive and her production is full of soul, giving you that good ole boom bap feeling again.
Beatmakers, producers, and music lovers, get to know ProducHerBeats.

PHB: I was out of touch with radio and t.v. for a while and when I came back from my little get away, music had changed. The big group was D4L and when I heard their song laffy taffy, I knew I could make better music. So I decided to give it a try and ProducHerBeats was created.

INST: Do you use or prefer sampling over playing live instruments?

PHB: Dj Premier , 9th wonder, Dj Statik Selektah, Kanye West, RJD2, and Jake One.

INST: Do you ever see yourself quitting or retiring from beat making?

PHB: Never, It’s what I was born to do! You can never give up on something that’s in your soul, it won’t let you.

INST: Is there a difference between being a producer and being a beat maker?

PHB: Yes, when you’re a beat maker, all you hear is the beat. When you’re a producer, you hear the beat but can also picture an artist on it and new instrumentation to bring out the beat more. A producer can see the bigger picture.

INST: Any tips, tricks, or advice that you’d like to share?

PHB: Don’t ever stop working. There will be a lot of people with advice and opinions and you can take some of it and help make you better, and some of it will be crap. Know how to take the good with the bad and the bad with the good. People will saying things to get you down but it’s the will in the soul that will keep you going. Everyone has a story continue to build yours
