Producer Boi-1da talks with Hip-Hop Canada about his work with Drake, producer management, current music setup (FL Studio 9 + laptop), and submitting tracks for Dr. Dre’s Detox.
The manager generally gets 15% – they basically handle all the business, I handle all of the creative aspects.
I currently have no manager but I’m in talks with a very serious management company. I have Violator hollering at me, a bunch of people. Everybody wants to manage me; management is a touchy situation.

holy shit he did all Drake, Birdman lil wayne shit with that wit fruity loops? i must suck ASS lmfao
A couple of the greatest producers in the world use FL 9 though.
Its obviously 1 of the best things that can make beats.
some people only know FL from all those wack starters that crack it for free.
Funny how when you start making moves, people suddenly appear, wanting a piece of your pie.
Fl Studio 9? no wonder those horns on forever sound so cartoonish lmao
that has nothing to do with Fruit.
thats cause he used a cartoonish sound.
im pretty sure those horns were part of fl tho.
whats wrong with the horn sounds? Can’t u look past that? the beat is dope! and the song is a hit!!
He seems pretty down to earth. Cool guy,
anyone know what piece of equipment that is in the picture with him in front of his comp? i think it says mackie not sure
It’s a Mackie Big Kn0b C0ntr0ller
It’s good to see a fellow Canadian making moves across the border, alongside other dope beathsmiths like Frank Dukes, Moss, and Marco Polo.
I think it’s important to also highlight the impact producers such as Saukrates, Classified, K-Os, and DJ Kemo, among others, have had in Canada. Although they might not have international recognition, they are highly respected up here, have influenced a generation of aspiring beatmakers, and continue to release dope records.
