Jacob Canady was born on December 10, 1998 on the Southside of Atlanta. He’s an established 2X Grammy nominated producer. His early love for music and desire to be the best has contributed to his success. He started making beats in 9th grade. While in highsSchool he met Future who was impressed by his many talents. He quickly became the in-house producer for Freebandz. Jacob’s fresh new sound can be heard on the 7 songs he produced on Future’s 2019 album, “The Wizard”. But it doesn’t stop there! Jacob is a key piece of the pie when it comes to the success of the Lil Baby and Lil Durk chart-topping album, “The Voice of Heroes”. Jacob has credits for over half of the songs on Future’s latest album, “I Never Liked You”, which dropped on April 29th. This multi- platinum producer went from humble beginnings selling beats for $90 to having placements on Kanye West’s, “Donda”. He is currently projected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with over 200,000 units sold. Jacob can be attributed to helping the new break-out artist Kali jump-start her career with her hit single, “MMM”, and he is currently getting ready to shock the world with a compilation album of his own. Jacob’s successful wrap sheet just continues to grow. He has worked with a long list of hot artists which includes Drake, Kodak Black, Desiigner, Trippie Redd, Roddy Rich, Jaqueese, and many more, he shows no sign of stopping or slowing down.

ATL Jacob produced over half of the tracks on Future’s record-breaking I Never Liked You album, and last month took the #1 spot in Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart. The producer, who met Future in high school and has been collaborating with him ever since, shows no signs of slowing down, with all nine of his produced or co-produced I Never Liked You tracks charting on Billboard Hot 100.
