Album: Tell 'Em Why U Madd

Derrick "D-Dot" Angelettie was the "Captain" of Bad Boy's Hitmen production squad in the mid and late '90s, responsible for the beats on such classic tracks as Biggie's "Hypnotize" and Puff Daddy's "All About The Benjamins." He was also responsible for the Madd Rapper character first heard on the intro to Biggie's "Kick In The Door," a role he later played over an entire album on 2000's Tell Em Why U Madd. While D-Dot naturally was credited with producing the bulk of the album, he entrusted production on (at least) six tracks to a then unknown Kanye, including this early appearance by a still-on-the-rise Eminem.
