Hip-hop is frustratingly short on women in production roles, but TrakGirl is here to change that. Born into a musical family, the DMV-area resident took to production in earnest at a young age, eventually coming to work with R&B talents like Tiffany Evans, whose crestfallen, ambient “All I Need” made it into Omarion’s hands and became “Ode to Tae” off the singer’s MMG debut, Care Package. This year she’s put in work with Danja protege Luke James, whose debut album is due this fall, and rising Cali synthpop act Mansions on the Moon and teased future work with Va. beat titan Timbaland.
