If you don’t know about 1500 or Nothin’ by now, it’s time to get schooled. Headed by Larrance Dopson, the Los Angeles-based collective of musicians/producers/writers have worked with big names from rap, R&B, and more.
They’re a band too, touring with the likes of Nas, Lupe Fiasco, and most recently Rick Ross.
Dopson constructing the Grammy-nominated crew as a self-described “movement” comprised of a “family of individuals.” Among the day-one family members are James Fauntleroy known most notably for writing credits on Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience releases, Drake’s “Girls Love Beyoncé” and Beyoncé’s newly-released fifth effort.
2013 has already been a good year for the 1500 or Nothin’ but expansion is the name of the game. For the latest edition of our “Beatmakers” feature series, Hip-Hop Wired spoke with the CEO about the growing brand, how he got started and why they’re unlike anyone else in the world.
