I had the pleasure to do a phone interview with Grammy nominated producer, Cash Clay Beats, a couple days prior to Christmas. Being this was my very first interview, I admit I was very nervous, but with the help of Cash Clay Beats positive energy, the vibe during the interview was overall great!
Cash Clay Beats is being nominated for producing the single, Kelly Price, off the The Migos album, The Culture. This will be the producer’s first time ever being nominated for a grammy! According to Cash Clay Beats, he has been doing music for quite some time now, first starting off as just an artist then switching to doing productions only, and shopping his beats around to those he was networking with.
An original St. Louis native, Cash Clay Beats has also produced a couple of songs for K Camp titled “Racks Like This” & “Rob Kardashian”, a single for YFN Lucci that features Trouble that just came out early December, and other songs for Boosie, & even R. Kelly! Cash Clay Beats started off as a barber, which is how he met K Camp! From being a barber is how he learned to network & promote himself. The producer advises up n coming producers to learn how to network! He states ” Sometimes you may have to network with people who are not on the 2 Chainz level, network with anyone who is involved in the music game for you never know who they might know.”
One of Cash Clay Beats goals is to produce movie soundtracks or to even work with artist as such as Katy Perry. Since he originally came from hair cutting, he will like to open up more barber shops & selling merchandise by branding his production company called Street Certified Beat Cartel.
Cash Clay Beats said to be looking out for him in 2018! He has a TV show on Comcast coming out called “The Drop”, three documentaries he is in,a compilation CD with TIG, Think Of The Game Records coming out soon, and to check out his website http://www.cashclaybeats.com for any further ventures or new music.
I know I will definitely be watching the Grammy’s this year especially since this will be the first time no Caucasian artists were nominated for “Album of the Year”, which includes Jay-Z’s the “4:44” album & Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN”. I wish Cash Clay Beats much blessings & I hope to be writing about his Grammy win!
