Posted By on January 16, 2007

Sha Money XL's Money Management Group and G-Unit Records will present the first annual One Stop Shop producers conference, which will take place Feb. 10-11 in Phoenix, AZ.
The One Stop Shop, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Phoenix, is a two-day conference dedicated to producers.

The conference has confirmed a number of heavyweight Hip-Hop producers as panelists, including DJ Premier, Swizz Beatz, The Alchemist, Fred Wreck, Hi-Tek, 9th Wonder, Havoc, Dangerous LLC, Sha Money XL and others.

"The conference is a dream come true," Sha Money XL told AllHip-Hop.com. "I've been to [conferences like] 'How Can I Be Down' and 'Jack the Rapper,' but never to a conference specialized for us producers. So I pulled out the check book, bought out a hotel, called all my Hip-Hop friends, from top notch producers to all the new ones that always ask me to help, because I knew I would be talking to all the guys who just don't know how to get themselves out there."

The event will feature workshops on A&R, publishing, the latest studio equipment, production tips and techniques and other educational panels aimed at pushing aspiring producers careers along.

Hopefuls will also be able to participate in the One Stop Shop Beat Battle for a contract with Money Management and play their production for the entire roster of G-Unit artists, which includes 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and others.

"Producers can ask questions to producers that made it, shop their tracks to A&R's from every label from G-Unit on down and meet all the top publishers in the game," Sha Money explained. "This is where if your game is tight and your music is right, you can come out this conference a winner and come up in the game."

The two-day business and networking event will also feature a Hip-Hop expo with local Phoenix vendors that specialize in tattoos, rims, clothing, custom haircuts and other specialty items."

The event is sponsored by Vitamin Water, iStandard Producers, XPOZ Magazine, AllHipHop.com, G-Unit Records, G-Unit Clothing and others.

According to Sha Money XL, he chose Phoenix because of the city's growing technology industry, as well as the areas stable weather.

"People can expect two hours about publishing, production, the art of sound with top engineers, meet every A&R and relax in the warm Arizona climate. I also bought out the whole kitchen and bar so they will be eating good and feeling good. The Hip-Hop game needs this!"
