The 20-year-old Dorchester producer appears in the No. 6 position on the Billboard Hot 100 Producers chart this week, recognized among names like Finneas and Max Martin. He’s simultaneously earned the No. 2 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Producers chart, and the No. 2 spot on the Rap Producers chart.
The high positions are unsurprising, considering the massive success of the Pop Smoke track he produced — “What You Know Bout Love” — which appeared on Pop Smoke’s posthumous album Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon. The track earned a platinum certificated in January, and also peaked inside the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Last fall, he appeared in the No. 4 position on the Rap Producers chart as well.
