Salaam Remi, Amy Winehouse’s Main Producer, Speaks On Her Artistic Influence, Dying At 27 And More (Video)

Ohhhh! Amy Winehouse’s main producer was Salaam Remi? That’s one of Nas’ go-to producers. Wonder if that is what put them in contact (e.g. both working with and trusting Remi), allowing them to grow their friendship. Or was it that those two were friends… and one introduced the other to Salaam Remi.

Salaam Remi is one of the producers who worked heavily with the late Amy Winehouse. The producer discusses meeting Amy, and how they would come together to produce jazz music. He goes on to speak about her issues with love, her sense of humor and how that affected her music. Despite producing a majority of Amy’s work, Salaam reveals he did not get a Grammy alongside the songstress. Salaam talks, Amy’s legacy after the troubled singer died at just 27 years old.

Rhythm Roulette With Salaam Remi (Video)

Solid bet that this Rhythm Roulette ep is gonna be dope. By now, if you’ve kept up with the series, you know that only the best producers make the cut to get on the show to make bangers from a blind record pull. Salaam Remi is at the tippy top of most ‘best of’ lists.

After hitting up A-1 Records, Salaam ends up with George Faith’s “Soulful,” Danny La Rue in London, and The Who’s “Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy.” Putting his faith in George Faith, he finds the backbone of his beat and then pulls some samples from the others. Joell Ortiz also makes a short cameo to comment on the work-in-progress beat. Watch the full creation process above.

And Joey O in there with the co-sign. Ha!

Joel Ortiz, Nitty Scott And Bodega Bamz Speak On How They Formed ‘No Panty’ And More (Video)

Wow. Sway looks at the this No Panty move through a spitter’s lens; not even considering that Joel Ortiz, Nitty Scott & Bodega Bamz are all Latino spitters! Check out the Sway In The Morning interview of new super-group No Panty. Get deeper in depth with all that.

When Salaam Remi calls, you answer. First reaching out to Joel Ortiz about his idea to put together some Latin SPITTERS, it was a no-brainer to bring Bodega Bamz and Nitty Scott in that conversation. Introducing: NO PANTY. A new group spitting BARS while still conserving the Latin culture. Watch above and grab their new project “Westside Highway Story.”

No Panty (Bodega Bamz x Nitty Scott x Joell Ortiz) – “Hola” [Prod. By Salaam Remi] (Video)

Of course, there have been Latin alliances in Hip-Hop before… right from its foundation. But that doesn’t diminish what’s up next – No Panty (a super-group comprised of Bodega Bamz, Nitty Scott & Joell Ortiz). Real spit for real from a trio with true lyrical pedigree.

New Latin hip hop group with members Bodega Bamz, Joell Ortiz, and Nitty Scott bring you their first visual “Hola” off of their new album “Westside Highway Story,” produced in its entirety by Salaam Remi.

And I’m not gonna front. Nitty got this vid the noon spot. So hot. All that and skills, too. She anchored this rhyme parade. Check it out!

R&B: Mack Wilds – ‘Girls Playing Tricks’ (Prod. By Salaam Remi)

Just in time for Valentines Day weekend, the kid from Shaolin aka the land of Wu-Tang Clan, releases this very dope new R&B song called ‘Girls Playing Tricks’ produced by Salaam Remi. I’m not sure if there is some sort of double entendre there in the title as I sort of chuckled to myself at the mere thought of it. This is very good song, but my only gripe with it is that it’s much too short. Maybe this is just a snippet of a video & full length song to come. Mack Wilds has been relatively quiet as of late, but I guess he’s been taking his time with the music. It definitely shows because I still believe he’s still wildly underrated musically.

R&B/Soul: Salaam Remi – “One In The Chamber” feat. Akon (Video)

Producer Salaam Remi puts it down, and puts Akon down, on this “One In The Chamber.” Off Salaam’s Grammy-nominated “ONE: In the Chamber” album, the video had to bring it. Sex, guns, and intrigue all in less than five minutes… Consider it brought.

Nas Speaks On Heavy D Producing His Latest Single ‘The Don’ (Video)

Nas speaks on Heavy D’s involvement with his latest reggae influenced single “The Don” that’s having hip hop heads abuzz right now. Under the hood is another video in which Nas discusses working with Nicki Minaj on a song called “Champion” that will appear on her album. We’re definitely looking forward to Nas’s upcoming “Life Is Good” album, but we’re not holding our breath expecting much from that particular collaboration with Nicki Minaj. Hopefully they’ll surprise us….

Nas – ‘Nasty’ (prod by Salaam Remi)


This is the type of sound most hardcore Nas fans like myself enjoy hearing him rock over. I hope Nas’s upcoming album ‘Life Is Good’ follows a similar pattern. Salaam Remi gave Nas this track that will make the average rapper sound basic over, but Nas lyrically gets busy with it…..with ease.

Cee-Lo Green Is Catching ‘Bodies’ With His New Movie Trailer


One of the standout tracks on Cee-Lo Green’s ‘Lady Killer’ album is a song called ‘Bodies’ produced by Salaam Remi. This trailer dropped a day or two ago which suggests it’s an upcoming movie featuring Kerry Washinton & Janelle Monae. I seriously doubt it’s a full length movie, but I assume it will be more of a epically cinematic video similar to the one Cee Lo dropped for ‘Bright Lights, Bigger City’. Not only did I enjoy the song, but I enjoyed the look & feel of the video for that one. In case you missed the video for ‘Bright Lights, Bigger City’ I’ve included it after the jump….
