Ski Beatz
David Willis, otherwise known as Ski Beatz, is an African-American record producer. Discovered by DJ Clark Kent, Ski was originally known as "MC Will-Ski". In the 1980s, he was a member of the group Original Flavor, the first group managed by future recording industry executive Damon Dash. In the mid-90's, Ski was working on duo Camp Lo's debut album Uptown Saturday Night when Dame called him in to work on the debut album of his own artist, Jay-Z. Jay's album, Reasonable Doubt, was released in 1996, marking Ski's first major production placement.

After the critical success of Reasonable Doubt, Ski formed Roc-A-Blok Productions in affiliation with Jay and Dame's label, Roc-A-Fella Records, working with Camp Lo and Sporty Thievz. The producer crafted most of Camp Lo's debut, which dropped in 1997, and produced the Fat Joe single "John Blaze"; Ski continued to work with Jay-Z, on his sophomore album In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 as well as non-solo albums and compilation projects, until 1998, when Jay released his third project Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life without beats from any of his former producers except for DJ Premier.

Ski continued producing for artists such as Nature, members of the New Jersey crew The Outsidaz, Lil' Kim, Foxy Brown, Ras Kass and Proof. The producer has continued to produce for Camp Lo, providing most of the production for their second album Let's Do it Again, as well as their third album, Black Hollywood.

Recently, Ski linked back up with Dame Dash, joining the entrepreneur's DD172 collective, subsequently nicknamed the 24-Hour Karate School. Since the foundation of the studio enclave, Ski has worked with Mos Def, Jay Electronica, Jean Grae and others; on April 30, 2010, he announced that he will be producing upcoming albums for Jean Grae, Joell Ortiz, Ras Kass and others, and will be producing all but three songs on the rapper Curren$y's 3rd album Pilot Talk ; these artists are also all featured on the producer's upcoming solo debut, entitled 24 Hour Karate School in honor of the collective.

As of late, Ski has also produced Curren$y's 4th album, Pilot Talk 2. He is also working on 24 Hour Karate School II, a jazz and classical instrumentals album, as well as a collaborative project with the Disco Biscuits. Stay tuned for more.
Jaeson Green
Jaeson Green
Jaeson Green aka James N. Williams was born September 14th 1988, in Dallas, Texas, the oldest of his mother’s two sons. He grew up in a church based home, with his father being a Pastor, and his mother being a missionary. Even at an early age he knew that music was his passion. He sang in the youth choir in his father’s church and participated in numerous talent shows while attending Jimmy Tyler Brashear Elementary School. It wasn’t until he was introduced to Hip Hop at the age of 12, that he really became a fanatic. With his father consistently being absent, the likes of Scarface, Jay-Z, and UGK, became his "father figures".
Music became one of his favorite past times: "Jazz, Blues, Gospel, R&B, Hip Hop, etc. He began to write about his views on growing up without an "in home" male role model. Circumstances in is neighborhood affected him as well as the things that his peers were going through. Jaeson stated "I've always looked at music as one of the greatest forms of expression, especially after hearing Scarface's "The Diary". It made me want to tell a story...not just mine, but a true life event that I either saw or experienced".
He recorded his first mixed tape while he was a sophomore in high school entitled "Kinfolk", and it got great reviews. As Jaeson became older, he recognized that he had something special...a gift. That realization gave him the incentive he needed to start his own companies. He owns all rights to 4SELF Entertainment, 110% Management, and God Given Publishing.
Now that Jaeson is 22 years old, he has plans to be a relevant star. With his favorite quote "If God is For Me, Who can be against Me" (Romans 8:31) in his heart, he feels that nothing can stop him. His début EP "The Green House Effect" is set to drop in the third quarter of this year. Jaeson is currently attending Media Tech Institute for Recording Arts. His goal is to write his own music and engineer it as well.
