early Hip Hop – Terrel Wallace (aka Tall Black Guy) has become a standard

productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production
chops, he has won fans across the world, including Gilles Peterson (who
included him on one of his Brownswood Bubblers albums), Lefto, Anthony

beginnings of worldwide recognition, Tall Black Guy has established himself
to be one of the most influential producers working today.
