As a once proud resident of Norfolk, Virginia, I take some pride in knowing that there are great artists and producers that have risen from the 7 Cities. From the legendary Teddy Riley, to Timbaland, Pharrell and Chad Hugo, Nottz, Clipse, Missy Elliot, Lex Luger, Danja and Bink!
To celebrate the producers out of the 757, we’re gonna do our best to highlight them in this new sub-section of 2Deep; once a week covering the vast discographies of these producers and artists. Today we present some of the best from Norfolk, VA’s Bink!/Bink Dawg (peace to E. Little Creek Road) who has been cranking out hits from the mid 90s to the present, producing for everyone from Blackstreet, 702, A+, The Lost Boyz to Kanye West, JAY Z and a vast host of others.
There’s a lot missing here because, well, TL;DR right? Most recently, Bink! landed production on Rick Ross’ sixth solo LP, Mastermind for “Mafia Music III” featuring dancehall OGs Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.
