Producer Ski Beatz is responsible for four of the tracks included on Jay-Z's 1996 classic debut Reasonable Doubt. Then known as "Ski," the Original Flavor member who had previously worked with the pride of Marcy Projects on "Can I Get Open" and "Many Styles" on their 1994 Beyond Flavor album was largely responsible for his introductory sound. Ski produced "Dead Presidents II" (and the song's first 12" version) as well as street hit "22 Two's."
Now working from Dame Dash's DD172 Studios and Blu Roc Records, it has been announced that Ski Beatz will be performing Reasonable Doubt live tomorrow night at Brooklyn, New York's Public Assembly. While the event bills "surprise special guests," the lyrical portion of the album will be handled by Senseis.
In addition to releasing his own solo debut, 24 Hour Karate School earlier this year, Ski Beatz produced a bulk of Curren$y's Pilot Talk album.
