Has produced for: ScHoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar
Gwen Bunn doesn't have a stacked track record like a lot of producers on this list. The 20-year-old Decatur-based producer/artist isn't producing for all of Atlanta's rising rappers, but that almost makes it even more impressive that she co-produced "Collard Greens," the Kendrick Lamar-featuring lead single from ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron.
She co-produced the song with production team THC, and her interview with LA Weekly reveals that she played no small role: "The other THC member, Axel Folie, made a drum beat that I was feeling but I felt it needed something extra on it. He actually threw that beat away and wanted to move on to something else but I stopped him from doing that and added a bassline to his drum kick beat. After I put the bassline in, I added the synthesizers and completed the drum beat."
"Collard Greens" should open up some doors for Gwen, and if she's got more off-kilter ideas like this, we look forward to seeing her name pop up in more production credits. Check out her original music here.
