He handled the production for the tense, spaghetti-western sounding 'Nosetalgia' -- a Kendrick Lamar-featured Pusha T track off his album, 'My Name Is My Name.' The producer is also behind the moody, mid-tempo instrumental for 'Look,' which features Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and Hodgy Beats trading bars.
