THE TRICKY STEWART COLLECTION

trickystewartcollection

The-Dream is the biggest shit in R&B right now, but his fans still don’t know much about the guy behind the guy: veteran producer Christopher “Tricky” Stewart. The 35-year-old creative mastermind was already producing for major artists (along with his original partner Sean “Sep” Hall) while still in high school. Originally a native of Chicago’s suburbs, Tricky worked in L.A. for a few years before meeting L.A. Reid and moving out to Atlanta in 1995, where he established his RedZone Entertainment company.

Before long, he was crafting huge mainstream hits for JT Money and Mya, and signing a few semi-successful artists like Blu Cantrell. The RedZone collective has since grown to include key players like songwriter The-Dream and vocal producer Kuk Harrell, a team that’s taken Tricky’s success to new heights. In honor of Love Vs. Money dropping today, I compiled some of my favorite Tricky joints from the last 17 years for this week’s Uggh…Nice Watch release…

  8. Very impressive music knowledge. You went WAY back! (106th-Tricky’s ‘Tu y Yo” is Paulina)
    I’m surprised Dream’s “Fancy” didn’t make the list, but I got another one for you…Celine Dion’s “Skies of LA”. What did you think of his work with Gym Class Heroes?
