Popular Record producer Dewayne Kennemer aka WayneOnABeat shares what’s onboard next for his production house Street Empire
Beginning his career as a producer back in the year 2008, record producer Dewayne aka WayneOnABeat developed a fondness for music while he was in middle school which eventually turned into a lucrative business. With an experience in professional music of more than a decade, Dewayne through his self-learning has set a benchmark for many record producers.
With the help of his wide expertise, Dewayne built a production team called ‘Street Empire’ which has two notable names along with him – Louie Montana and Vontae Thomas. The trio’s latest work ‘The Goat’ is making all the right noise on the internet as it has become Dewayne’s first platinum plaque with more than 2 billion streams and 20 global certifications. Learning from scratch, this talented music artist has gone miles away with his production Street Empire.
He shares, “Street Empire was started in 2010. After collaborating with Louie Montana & Vontae Thomas over the months, it was obvious we had something special. We quickly came up with the name Street Empire as it represents where we’re from(The Streets) and what we want to become(An Empire). Over the years, we have documented over 800 plus collaborations and have been able to get placements with some big artists(Chris Brown, Polo G, Logic, Wale, YK Osiris, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Lil Durk, Tee Grizzley, Young Jeezy, YFN Lucci, Yo Gotti)”.
He further adds, “I want to start looking into artist and producer development. I’ve had the opportunity to work with an artist that creates reference tracks to submit for placements. I notice that some of the artists I work with never really make it out of the songwriting stage because they simply don’t know how to market themselves or feel they have the right team around them to push a record. I would love to have an opportunity to have an artist under Street Empire to push and guide me to success. With our experience and talent, anything is possible If you truly work hard for it. The same goes for producer development. I want to start creating camps for producers and link them with artists. I know so many producers that make beats but never truly worked with an artist in the same room. I want to create that opportunity and see what magic we can create”.
