“Who” is a bonus track coming from the Red Bull Big Tune’s finalists’ compilation. The compilation is entitled Suite Sixteen and it showcases each finalist’s work. There are sixteen tracks from sixteen producers and Erica’s song is lucky number seventeen. An interesting thing about this track is that five finalists, along with another producer, all co-produced “Who”. Naturally, it may seem that the production would be jumbled, but it’s actually the complete opposite.

This is another joint that i decided to leave off the mixtape. I really like this one because It was one of the joints where i was really talking about something, but the more i listened to it, especially mixed in with the other joints, the more i realized that this woulda been like you in the club, having fun and shit, then they stop the music outta nowhere, hit you with some heavy shit, then turn “Say ahh” back on and act like everything is all good. lol. So to save ya’ll from that #awkwardmoment, here it is. Lemme know what you think if you check it out.
This EP is the culmination of 5+ years of chemistry between the West Covina, CA MC Trek Life and up & coming producer J. Bizness from Ontario, CA. The music contained within is a combination of raw West Coast edge with classic Hip-Hop soul.

J. Bizness, in collaboration with FWMJ/Rappers I Know, also has created an EP series featuring artists over his production. The first in the series showcases Richard Wright over Bizness’ production.
First off, we welcome you all to the 3P Series. The term “3P” is a play on the term “EP” which stands for “extended play”. An EP is generally 6-8 total tracks and is usually just a sample of what is to come from a particular artist. For promotional purposes, it was decided that 3 tracks were just enough to solicit a positive response from the audience and hopefully keep them interested in future releases from the particular artists.
