Biography

Troy “Webstar” Ryan, a 19-year-old Harlem-based deejay and producer, is the creative force behind “Chicken Noodle Soup,” the great underground sensation of the summer of 2006. He is also the co-executive producer of WEBSTAR PRESENTS…CAUGHT IN THE WEB (along with Arthur Smith and Kirk Burrowes), a compilation of new talent set for release on Universal Republic on September 26. Finally, he is the owner, with his old friend and partner Arthur Smith, of a brand-new Fontana-distributed label called Scrilla Hill.

Webstar began producing and promoting as a teenager. In 2005, he came together with Young B (Bianca Dupree) to produce her song “Chicken Noodle Soup.” The song began to be played in small clubs in Harlem and became an internet phenomenon, especially when people began to upload different home made videos of the song onto YouTube. It also received another push from DJs in New York on Hot 97, who began to spin the track on their station.

DJ Webstar, as CEO of Scrilla Hill Records has taken “Chicken Noodle Soup” and other artists and placed them onto a compilation album due out in Fall 2006.


Webstar and Art go back to Web’s first parties in 2001, where Art provided security for the young deejay. The friendship quickly ripened into a partnership. It was under the banner of their own Scrilla Hill Records label that Web produced a recording called “The Tone Wop” at the end of last year.
