As part of Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch series, Detroit rap firebreather Danny Brown and MPC-bashing producer AraabMuzik recently linked together, banging out a hard-as-fuck new track called “Molly Ringwald” on the spot. And it’s a real testament to how talented these two guys are that a song like this can emerge in such impromptu fashion. Because “Molly Ringwald” is a very, very good rap song.

AraabMUZIK said the over the past few months, he’s hit the studio with the likes of Eminem, Slaughterhouse, Jadakiss and many others. He said that in addition to working with artists of that caliber, he’s also been getting more and more opportunities to perform at live events on his MPC.

“[Making beats] became like a job, something that I’m actually doing for a living,” he said. “I’m working with Slaughterhouse, Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Fabolous, 50 Cent, obviously the new Cam’ron album. I was on Jim Jones’s last album. I’m definitely going to be on a lot of projects. It’s not just producing, it’s also performing now, so I’m definitely considered an artist/producer.”
