If you’re a hip hop fan, and admired the work of Bad Boy back in the day, then you certainly know of the producers of The Hitmen. The members have shifted over the years for the official group, but they have always consisted of some of the most talented producers in the game who have touched some of the biggest hits in hip hop music. One of the newer members of the crew in recent years has been LV, who you may know of from the producing duo, Sean C. and LV. We recently got a chance to sit down and chat with the producer, who has produced countless hits you may not know of, such as JAY Z’s “Roc Boys” and even Remy Ma’s smash single, “Feel So Good.” Despite working with everyone from Fat Joe and Jadakiss, LV does have a favorite of who he’s gotten to work with over the years. “Of course it would be JAY Z. At the time I was still really bugging the f**k out. I was still trying to find myself at the time,” he told us. Be sure to read more of our profile on the incredibly talented LV, and see what’s coming next from him.
Check out our producer profile on LV on the following pages.

“I think it’s just a God given talent. I don’t know what life is without it, so it’s something that’s been there. My first thing was that I always wanted to be a DJ, so it wasn’t like an instrument, it was music being played. I was just attracted to that. [At around age 10] I set up turntables with old equipment I found.” He later added, “As far as my growth, I’m more than a beat maker now.”

“We’re working on No Way Out 2 now, and it’s coming. I’m so in it and just getting it done that I have no idea when it would be coming. If Puff says we’re finished today, then we’d be finished today. We started working on this 2.5 years ago, so we’re just in it until it’s done.”
