Producer Conference Comes To Miami, Sha Money XL & The Runners Serve As Panelists

Hip-Hop mega producers Sha Money XL, Cool & Dre, The Runners and others will be making history at Miami’s first annual Beats on the Beach music seminar this fall.

Production company iStandard and DBHH Management created the producer-influenced event, expected to serve as a networking opportunity for industry insiders and up-and-coming people to meet one another.

“If you guys are serious about yourself, invest in yourself, get down here [and] make it to Miami,” iStandard’s J Hatch said in a statement. “We’re looking to have beat battles on the beach, showcases on the beach, panels on the beach. So be a part of it, man.”

The seminar will feature panelists Sha Money and The Runners alongside A&R reps including Shady’s Riggs Morales and Interscope West’s Danny Carter. Co-signing the company’s initiative, Sha exclusively told SOHH that fans should have high expectations.

“Anything masterminded and brought to you by iStandard is gonna be a great opportunity for anyone seeking knowledge [and] connects in the industry,” Hatch explained.

All nominees will be competing for recognition and various luxury prizes including a $4,000 keyboard.

"We’re giving away a Roland Fantom G6 to the winner of the producer showcase,” Hatch added. “We’re doing some major, major stuff that’ll all be announced through the website,”

The event’s website promises to “feature some of the most exhilarating interactive workshops and industry panels, producer and artist showcases, live “poolside” documentaries, sponsor & vendor exhibits” and a lot more.

Interested artists and producers will have an August 29th deadline to submit their works for consideration. If chosen, nominees will all be notified by September 1st with event instructions.

Beats on the Beach will take place October 9-11 in Miami, Florida.

50 Cent Raps On Dr. Dre's Detox

"I recorded material with Dr. Dre for the Detox," 50 Cent told MTV News in New York. "It's great. I want it back. I want the records back."

50 was just joking. He doesn't really want the songs he did with Dre back, but he does want some material the Doc just has laying around.

"He has the music. It's right there in the computer," Fif divulged. "I stop by [his studio] every time and get something that adds something significant to my project each time [I'm about to put a record out]. And I spend three or four days there. To me, he's the best producer in the game.

"When I walk in the studio, I record the first [beat] that comes on regardless if I think it's a hit record or not," he added. "We get in work mode, get comfortable and go through the material that's in the computer. Dre always has hit records. Sometimes, artists that need producers, they need someone to create a direction for them musically. I need the jewels he's just got laying around. He don't gotta tell me what to do with it. All he has to do is say, 'Track six.' Or, 'Go to track eight.' He'll have hits playing there. You just have to get in and get them."

The G-Unit's team captain doesn't know when the album is coming out, but he's anticipating it just as much as everybody else.

"Hopefully he'll get it done and put it out," 50 said. "I'm waiting for the Detox. All I can say is, Dr. Dre is the best producer in my eyes. Just the consistency over the years. ... He knows what he wants. He's such a perfectionist that it becomes difficult for him to put it out." ...
