Fellow Virginia Natives And Long-Time Collaborators Revisit D.M.P. Days With New Track
DOWNLOAD: Ivory Keyes Featuring And Produced By Nottz – Temptation
Coming off the recent success of his collaborative EP with Asher Roth, RAWTH, released in late 2010, and the release of his debut solo album, You Need This Music, before that, the Virginia-based Nottz is back in the studio doing what he does best. Earlier this year Nottz brought fans a track with Compton rapper A-WOLL, and now Nottz is releasing a new collaborative track “Temptation”, with fellow Virginia native and long-time collaborator Ivory Keyes. Nottz and Keyes’ friendship stems from their young days as group members of D.M.P., and with this new track Nottz shows off his signature style, as he layers pounding drums, thick, rolling bass, and guitar plucks to compliment Keyes’ street oriented bars.
Since 1998, some of Virginia-born Nottz’ biggest records to date include, Snoop Dogg Ft R.Kelly “That’s That,” Kanye West Ft Lil Wayne “Barry Bonds,” and Scarface Ft Trey Songz “Girl You Know.” Adding to those credits, he has collaborated with artists such as Notorious B.I.G, Swizz Beats, The Game, 50 Cent, Dwele, and Murs just to name a few. These past few years he has built fan base and earned his stripes as a respected and talented artist and, on October 19th 2010, he is set to release his self-produced debut, You Need This Music. All of Nottz’ hard work has been, in his words, “to take over the world one day with my sound.”
