Like many successful hip-hop producers, J. Oliver has gained much of his reputation by smartly hitching his wagon to a rising MC, in this case Baltimore’s current breakout star, Los. But like a truly talented producer, J. Oliver hasn’t merely been riding his homeboy’s coattails, landing his first major-label credit this year for French Montana’s “Told Em,” as well as producing for everyone from Houston’s Kirko Bangz to hometown rappers like StarrZ and the late Smash. J. Oliver continues reserving some of his best work for Los, however, outshining some much more famous producers with his contributions to the Bad Boy rapper’s hugely popular latest mixtape, Becoming King.
