Producer: T-Ray
Album: Put Ya Boots On
Label: Big Beat Records

T-Ray was a South Carolina–bred producer who cut his teeth in the early '90s making beats for groups like the Double XX Posse. "Not Gonna Be Able To Do It," was a No. 1 record on the Rap Singles chart, but the group was never able to match its success. Conversely, T-Ray went on to produce for Cypress Hill, House of Pain, The Artifacts and Santana, among others. Further proof that being behind the boards may lead to a longer shelf life in the music business than being on stage.
