In The Lab with Nesby Phips

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Don’t try to put Nesby Phips in a box. For the past decade, the New Orleans native has been on his grind as a producer, lacing heavy hitters like Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, and Action Bronson with carefully crafted tracks (check out Spitta and Bam Bam’s “Godfather 4,” a personal favorite). And he’s been putting in work with the pen, too, making a name for himself as a sought after MC who’s always good for a solid project or slick feature. Whether you want beats or bars, Nesby Phips is fully equipped.

But that’s not all. Nesby’s a renaissance man of sorts, whose passion extends beyond the MPC and the M-I-C—he’s also an avid painter and well-respected (and connected) barber who’s been cutting hair since high school. In fact, that’s how he built relationships with many of the artists he’s worked with over the years.

For our latest In The Lab, we spoke to Nesby Phips about his first recording experiences, how he lost almost all his production equipment to looters after Hurricane Katrina, and what his current creative routine entails. And we discussed the eye-opening time he spent working out of Dame Dash’s famed DD172 gallery in New York City, collaborating with living legends like Ski Beatz and others.

Plus, we chopped it up about his recent contributions to Lil Wayne’s new mobile game Sqvad Up (download HERE)—which he produced all the music and sounds for. And much, much more.

Welcome to Hollygrove.
