Hip hop artist Stalley (@stalley) today announced the appointment of long-time producer and engineer, Smitti Boi (@therealsmitti), as the head of A&R for his label Blue Collar Gang (BGC), effective immediately. Smitti’s new role includes overseeing the label’s music output from a lyrical and sonic perspective, while also finding and developing new and existing talent for BCG. He will play an active role in advising on projects and placements for the label’s roster of artists and producers.
The Atlanta-based producer and former MMG hip hop artist first met backstage at A3C music festival a few years ago, which later led to a studio session and eventual friendship. Stalley and Smitti are currently working on a collaborative project that will drop later this year. Smitti Boi’s producer credits include CeeLo Green, Boosie Badazz, B.o.B., Stalley, Curren$y, Starlito and more.
On his new appointment, Smitti Boi said, “My goal is to bring everything I can to Blue Collar Gang. I want to give the fans great music from not only Stalley, but the entire roster of BCG talent.” While he will continue producing music for other artists, his primary and day-to-day focus will be elevating the label and its artists.
