Behind every popular song, it’s always a producer that mixed and created the beat for the song to be perfect. You may have heard the popular song “Twerkalator” as you opened up the Tik Tok app during the day, the social media hit by female rap duo City Girls took social media by storm when it was originally leaked. With the song now being cleared and on music streaming services, it’s important to know the mastermind behind the summer ladies’ anthem.
Behind JT’s and Yung Miami’s rap lyrics comes the beat created by Atlanta native Mr. Hanky (Corey Bennard). With his musical roots being dated back all the way to his childhood, he earned the title of super producer for a reason. With his producing credits being heavily embedded with Atlanta rap culture, he has worked with many artists like Soulja Boy, Travis Porter, DJ Luke Nasty, Lil Duval, Queen Naija, and the list goes on.
TUC sat down with the super-producer himself where we discussed his music, the state of hip-hop, and much more.
