Atlanta’s Section 8 and Chi Chi are a cheat code to Platinum records. The self-taught producers’ signature sounds can be heard on hip-hop hits like BRS Kash’s “Throat Baby,” Lil Baby and 42 Dugg’s “We Paid,” and across Lil Baby’s sophomore album, My Turn.
In 2021, Section 8 and Chi Chi are most inspired by each other and a commitment to evolution—no two records produced by the Georgia natives sound the same. The duo may have only been working together for a couple of years but their chemistry across records sounds organic and polished.
For the latest episode of Audiomack’s Beyond the Beat series, hosted by Billboard Hip-Hop Editor Carl Lamarre, Section 8 and Chi Chi share the story of how they synced up, working with Atlanta’s biggest rap stars, their advice for aspiring producers trying to break into the industry, and more.
