On October 22nd, Kendrick Lamar released his critically acclaimed album Good Kid: M.A.A.D City through Aftermath Entertainment. Among the project’s many hits, one record features production from one of the most talented up-and-coming production teams out right now.
Tabu is an up-and-coming production team out of Denmark who have already worked with some of the hottest Hip Hop acts since hitting the scene. In fact, the Treacherous Records in-house producers recently laced Kendrick Lamar with a beat for his song The Art of Peer Pressure which has received an incredible response. However, Tabu has also worked with Kendrick Lamar’s Top Dawg Entertainment label mate Schoolboy Q as well. In a recent interview with The Shadow League, Tabu explains that, “we love what the T.D.E. camp brings to the table, the sound and how they bring the good stuff back in Hip Hop … getting on Kendrick’s album was just a double bonus for us.” It is certainly a great look for Tabu to appear on such a highly regarded project and fans can expect to hear a lot of hits coming from them going forward.
While Tabu has provided beats to artists outside of their own camp, the group has also produced tracks for Treacherous Records as well. Fans will surely recall their work with Crooked I, the Horseshoe G.A.N.G. and One-2. Please preview a sample of their production using the media player included below.
