Since the 80’s, DJ Toomp has been holding it down in the music world. Toomp is definitely a product of hard work, persistence, and loyalty to one’s craft. It took the world a minute to get the picture, but please believe, we see it crystal clear now! Toomp got his start as a tour DJ for MC Shy-D and the rest is history. Most people didn’t recognize Toomp’s sound until he hooked up with an upcoming Atlanta artist by the name of T.I. Whenever these 2 get together, the music industry is almost certainly to be blessed with classic music. Toomp produced 6 songs on Tip’s solo debut, “I’m Serious.”
- 01. “Intro”
- 03. “Dope Boyz”
- 06. “Why I’m Serious (Interlude)”
- 08. “Do It”
- 15. “Heavy Chevys”
- 17. “Outro”
Toomp went on to produce more classics for Tip like, “Be Easy,” “You Don’t Know Me,” “What You Know,” & “Motivation.” After his collaborations with Tip, Toomp really started working. We would be here for days trying to go through the God’s catalog, so I’m just gonna post some joints that you are familiar with, but probably had no idea Toomp produced or either co-produced. First, peep Toomp making a beat on the spot in less than 3 minutes

“Can’t tell me nothing” Kanye West… Toomp co-produced this joint and “Good Life.” Toomp also produced “Big Brother” on Graduation
“Say Hello” Jay-Z
“2 miles an hour” Ludacris
I’m pretty sure that Toomp will be all over Tip’s next Lp as well as B.O.B’s. At any rate, if you aren’t up on Toomp, I hope that you are now! This brother is dope and definitely has some heat.
We solute you Toomp!
