DJ Toomp Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

T.I. "Trap Muzik" (2004)


Album: Trap Muzik
Label: Grand Hustle Records, Atlantic Records

DJ Toomp: “Me and Tip produced 'Trap Muzik' together. You know Tip produce too. You put him on an MP and a keyboard, and that man will definitely show you what time it is. He already knew how to produce when we met. That’s what helped our chemistry. When you have an artist who knows music to a certain degree, it helps a lot—the songs come together a lot easier, it makes the writing process a lot easier. For this record, first he had the roughs of it together. He had the organ, but we just started playing around with it a little bit more. He had the idea but I ended up coming in and we just took it to the next level, and made it the title song, the intro for the entire Trap Muzik album.”
