We are joined this week by producer Harvey Mason Jr for an interview. Most will know him as part of The Underdogs which brought us hits such as “O” by Omarion as well as “Naked” by Marques Houston. He’s also done a lot outside in the film industry with his music contributions to “Sing” and “Dream Girl”. We talk to Harvey about his history and also touch on some of the behind the scenes that goes on in the music industry. On our end Edd returns to the podcast to talk about Missy Elliott’s VMA performance and new projects from Chris Brown, H.E.R. and Justine Skye.
