16-Year-Old Producer WondaGurl Talks Working With Jay-Z
Producer WondaGurl has already worked with one of rap’s greats, Jay-Z, and she’s only 16 years old.
The Canadian wunderkind opened up to MTV News about creating the basis for Jay’s ‘Crown,’ featured on his new LP, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail.’
Initially, Wondagurl, born Ebony Oshunrinde, made the beat for Pusha T and Travis Scott. The latter had other plans for the track. “Travis Scott said he was going to add some stuff to it and then later on, a few days afterwards, he messaged me saying he’s about to change my life and a few days later he told me that I was on Jay-Z’s album,” she said. “At first I didn’t really believe him when he told me, it didn’t seem real.”
What’s the future hold for this precocious beatmaker? “I’d like to work with Kanye West, Drake, Timbaland on some beats and Keri Hilson,” she said. “I want to make her comeback track because I’ve always been a fan.”
