This is Billion Dollar Baby, the must-listen track from hip hop artist and producer Ghostwriter LA.
Ghostwriter LA serves up a laid-back sound on Billion Dollar Baby, the perfect chilled soundtrack for hip hop heads to jam to this Fall season. The lyrical flow stays low-key and simplistic on this one, but smooth enough to engage and keep you on the hook.
His acumen as a producer shines through from start to finish, as he manages to create a broad, room-filling sound despite his minimalistic approach to the genre.
Inspired by artists such as Tupac Shakur, Nas, Mobb Deep and Kool G Rap, but also producers like Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and legends like Isaac Hayes and Willie Hutch, producer, writer and vocalist Ghostwriter LA stepped on to the nascent Swedish hip hop scene in 1996. After moving to the United States in 2004, he embarked on a rocky path that took him away from music for almost fifteen years. But music never left his body and soul.
“It’s only when I’m making music or writing songs that I truly feel free. I don’t know how a song is going to sound or turn out before I start it. It’s an organic process for me and I don’t want to be bound by certain genres,” says Ghostwriter LA.
