Just Blaze

Justin Smith (d. 14 Ocak 1978, Paterson, New Jersey), bilinen adıyla Just Blaze, ABD'li hip hop müzik yapımcısı ve Fort Knocks Entertainment şirketinin kurucusudur. == Kariyeri == Justin Smith, 1990'lı yılların sonlarında çeşitli sanatçıların albümlerinde yapımcı olarak çalışmaya başladı. Bu yapımlar, onun Jay-Z'nin Roc La Familia albümünde yer almasını sağladı. Bu albümdeki çalışmaları ve Kanye West ile birlikte yaptıkları çalışmalar, ikilinin Roc-A-Fella Records şirketiyle çalışmalarını sağladı. Justin Smith, yapımcı olarak Just Blaze adını kullanmaya başladı. Roc-A-Fella şirketine bağlı sanatçılardan birçoğunun albümlerinin yapımcılığını üstlendi. 2002'de Smith, Cam'ron'ın büyük ilgi gören parçası "Oh Boy"un yapımcılığını da üstlendi. Ayrıca Snoop Dogg, Shawnna, Usher, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Memphis Bleek, Cam'ron, Saigon, Young Gunz, Grafh, Beanie Sigel, The Game, DMX, T.I., Fat Joe, Juelz Santana, Rhymefest, Ghostface Killah, Jin, Fabolous, Freeway, Joe Budden, MF DOOM, Kool G Rap, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, Rah Digga, Teriyaki Boyz, Edison Chen, JME, Skepta ve Klashnekoff gibi birçok isimle çalıştı. Janet Jackson'ın "Just a Little While" parçasının "Love Me" adında bir remixini de hazırladı. 2004'te Jay-Z'nin kariyerinde verdiği aradan sonra Smith, kendisine ait plak şirketini açmaya karar verdi. Bu fikirle ilk olarak Roc-A-Fella Records'a gitti, ancak Damon Dash'in ayrılığından sonra, bir şirket hibe etmeyi göze alamayan Roc-A-Fella'dan, olumsuz yanıt aldı. Daha sonra, Def Jam Recordings'e gitti ancak şirket, risk almaya istekli değildi. Son olarak, Atlantic Records'un kapısını çaldı, %50'li Smith'e ait olacak bir şirket açmayı kabul ettiler. Smith, şirkete Fort Knocks Entertainment adını verdi. == Diskografi == Just Blaze'in yapımcı olarak görev aldığı şarkıların ve albümlerin yıllara göre listesi aşağıda sıralanmıştır. == 1999 == === Buckshot - The BDI Thug === * 09.
