Hiphopcrack has learned that Money Management Group chief exec and G-Unit co-founder Sha Money XL (born Michael Clervoix) is puttiing together a "One Stop Shop Conference" for aspiring producers, the first of its kind. According to Sha Money XL, the forum is designed to teach burgeoning boardsmen how "sell tracks to A&R’s, find a good manager and shop for a publishing deal."
He adds: "As a producer when I was coming up there was no one place you could get this all done. I’ve been to every Hip-Hop conference, but nothing ever dedicated to the producer."
The 2-day conference, which runs from February 10 – 11 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Phoenix, AZ (located @ 122 N. 2nd St. — 602-252-1234), will address topics like "Finding Artist & Management Representation," "Art of Production," and "Studio Equipment & the Art of Sound."
Chris Lighty (of Violator Management), DJ Premier, Swizz Beatz, Hi-Tek, Havoc, Sha Money XL, 9th Wonder, Consequence, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck, are expected to be in attendance.
