Bandplay is a producer out of Nashville, Tennessee and that’s really about all the info there is out there about him, though on Instagram he does describe himself as the “music producer for your favorite artist.” And at least in the case of me that is somewhat true.
He might not have the brand name like other big producers such as Carnage, Metro, Sonny Digital, etc. But you see, Since at least late 2013 / early 2014, Bandplay has been crafting a lot of the tracks released by one of my favorite rappers of all time, Young Buck. Bandplay is one of two (the other being Drumma Boy) GO TO producers for Young Buck. Besides being a producer who has provided Young Buck with dozens of beats, he is an important part of the Tennessee rap scene providing beats to other big name Tennessee artists such as Jelly Roll, Lil White, and UpChurch.
Bandplay is able to take samples from strange places and crafts them into gritty street productions that perfectly compliment the artists he produces for. For example, Bandplay took a Barry Manilow sample and turned it into the “Water” beat for French Montana. Though French probably doesn’t remember who made it LOL!
Beyond Tennessee, through my research I have found out that he has also produced tracks for French Montana, Starlito, 50 Cent, Boosie Badazz, Big Sant, Lil Wyte, and even the late Chinx Drugz.
Producers, rappers, and fans, need to be paying more attention to Bandplay.
