Biography

San Antonio TX, United States (2009 – present)

Sometimes the best way to get the job done is to do it yourself. Those words inspired music producer Richie Branson (born Marcus Brown) to come into his own and make the decision to take his music career to the next level. Hailing from San Antonio, Texas; the 25 year old artist & producer took his first initial step into the music industry in 2009. Branson joined forces with music producer Jeremy “J.Forbes” Brown to start the production company Red Prodigy. Within months, Red Prodigy’s signature sound was co-signed by top executives in the music industry. Def Jam’s President, L.A. Reid, personally offered a record deal to one of Red Prodigy’s signees, Demarcus “Bone” Hamilton.

As a jack of all trades, Richie’s artistry, production, and engineering led Branson to co- produce Bone’s debut single “Homegurl”; which stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 Hip-Hop/R&B charts for 19 weeks and reached a radio audience of over 9 million people. From that success, eventually Richie would go on to do production work with platinum recording artist The Dream, Bun B, Rick Ross and southern natives Chalie Boy and Slim Thug.

Richie continues to differentiate himself in his hometown, his signature blend of hip-hop and pop music would earn him recognition as one of the best producers in town. The San Antonio Express-News featured Branson as one of the hottest up and coming producers in the industry. Branson was later nominated for the “best producer” award in the 2010 San Antonio Music Awards.

    I have known about him for awhile, but never gave a true listen till now. Just absolutely incredible. Honestly speaks the story of my childhood and I'm sure that's the same for a lot of people who give him a listen. I can't recommend his Otaku Tuesdays and The Wing Zero EP releases enough.
