What's Happening In Your World
By: Victor “Doc V” Trammell        A hot hip hop beatsmith  just got a great new gig. Salaam Remi is veteran music producer who has just been made Executive VP of A&R at Sony Music Entertainment . According to  Billboard.biz , the Grammy-nominated sound baron will play a critical role for the major label. He will also serve in positions at Sony subsidiaries, such as Columbia , Epic , and RCA . Salaam Remi’s soulful backdrops have been provided to non-hip hop artists as well. Toni Braxton, Jasmine Sullivan, Corrine Bailey Rae, and the late Amy Winehouse have all sung over Salaam Remi-produced tracks. Any fan of hip hop’s so-called golden age remembers the unique sounds provided by legendary East Coast-based producers. Names like Large Professor, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Buckwild, and Diamond D all ring bells among purists who love the soul and jazz samples over urban drums prevalent in rap’s previous era. Salaam Remi is another one of the great producers of that ripe musical time. Salaam produced mega hits for The Fugees like “Fu-Gee-La” off the group’s classic album “The Score.” He still crafts hits for notable artists to this day, such as Nas. Salaam produced several tracks for Nas’s current number one album “Life Is Good.” Other classic doses of Remi’s musical backdrops were Da Bush Babies’ old-school hit “Remember We” and “Set It Off” by Greg Nice.
