Producer Needlz Laces Trina, 50 Cent, Lupe Fiasco and more

Needlz Sets Off Projects For Trina And 50 Cent -- New Tracks With Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, Rich Boy and more

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 7, 2005 -- Multi-platinum producer Needlz has enjoyed a number of recent successes, including his contributions to Platinum albums for Young Buck, Game, G-Unit and Ludacris.

His work on 50 Cent's monster album The Massacre, with over 4.6 million copies sold to date, has been highly regarded by fans and critics alike. An animated video for the Needlz-produced "Piggy Bank" is available on The Massacre re-release, and the song will be featured in 50 Cent's upcoming film Get Rich Or Die Trying.

Needlz has an arsenal of new songs brewing with the likes of lyrical phenom Talib Kweli, Interscope's highly-touted up-and-comer Rich Boy, Miami veteran Trick Daddy, and Def Jam's youngest emcee Cory Gunz. Needlz' track "Throw It Back", a crunk duet with the Diamond Princess Trina and G-Unit's Young Buck, is currently featured on Trina's new album The Glamorest Life.

Lupe Fiasco, the Chicago newcomer who recently garnered some attention from his Kanye West collaboration "Touch The Sky" on the Late Registration LP, has been working with Needlz as well. The two recorded "Hurt Me Soul" and "Tilted" for Lupe's upcoming Atlantic Records debut album Food & Liquor, and "Tilted" is also featured on the NBA Live 2006 video game.

In addition to his major label accomplishments, Needlz has been focusing on his own Dry Rain production company. He has been helping to develop fresh sounds for some emerging talent, namely the enigmatic Fight Klub battle champ Serius Jones. Between Needlz' melodic beat mastery and Serius Jones' incredible songwriting abilities, music fans can look forward to some true heat in 2006.
