When Murda Beatz says music is a young man’s game, believe him. The self-taught 28-year-old, Grammy-nominated, Canadian trap prodigy has pictures of himself banging on drums when he was four years old. Born Shane Lee Lindstrom, from Fort Erie, Ontario, Murda Beatz became one of the most sought-after producers in the music industry.
At 16, Murda was drawn to Chicago’s drill scene, and reached out to Glory Boys Entertainment, home of Chief Keef and Lil Durk just as that wave was breaking. He began sending them beats and would eventually travel to Chicago to work with this crew that was pioneering the new sound of music. Murda has since taken hip-hop by storm having produced on 9 Grammy-nominated albums (6 in one year) and over 20 Billboard #1 albums. He is also growing his brand exponentially into sectors such as DJing and gaming.
