An Atlanta-based producer who crafted hits for the likes of YC, Future, and 2 Chainz, Atlanta's Sonny Digital launched a second career as an MC in 2016.
Born Sonny Corey Uwaezuoke in Saginaw, Michigan, Digital first created beats for various Atlanta rappers' mixtapes. In 2010 he went official when his work on Gorilla Zoe's "What's Goin' On" helped the track earn plenty of R&B radio play, but 2011 was his breakthrough year thanks to YC and the MC's Top Ten hit "Racks." In 2012 he produced hits for Future ("Same Damn Time") and 2 Chainz with Kanye West ("Birthday Song"), while iLoveMakonnen and Drake ("Tuesday") delivered the producer's big track of 2014. Work on Chief Keef's 2015 album BFD3 came next, then in 2016 Digital grabbed the mike on two of his own singles, "On It" plus "50 on My Wrist." ~ David Jeffries
