Emerson Windy began behind the controls producing music for talent like Snoop Dogg, Waka Flocka Flame, Crooked I, Three 6 Mafia, OJ Da Juiceman, Lil Niqo, Glasses Malone, and Tha Realest. Motivated by the promise he made to his late mother to “…keep going and do something special in this world”, Emerson Windy started writing that story and emerged on his own as a recording artist in early 2012. Coming out the gates swingin’, it wasn’t long before Emerson Windy was showing up on industry radars. In May 2014, Emerson Windy released his debut album Herojuana on Datpiff.com which includes a list of heavy hitters such as Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, Raekwon, Birdman, Tooley Wopp and Hofa Bang. Production credits include Timbaland, Mike Will Made It, DJ Mustard, !llmind, Sonny Digital, T-Minus, Jazzfeezy and The Nominees.
His video “Peace Pipe“ was debuted on WorldStarHipHop.com and immediately went viral, gaining over 14 million views within the first five days.
Continuing that success Windy released his follow up single and video for “Black America“ which was exclusively premiered on HipHopDX.com. Industry writer Soren Baker sat down to hear the motivation behind this powerful record. Check out the interview here.
“Black America“ debut on World Star Hip Hop received over 2.6 million views within 48 hours and started a necessary conversation about the broken education system in our nation.
Additional releases from Herojuana include “Poppin‘” which received nearly 2.5 million views and “Come Get It” feat Pusha T with over 3.1 million views both on World Star Hip Hop.
Expanding his reach overseas, Windy collaborated with London producer SK!TZ Beatz on a remix of “Come Get It” feat Pusha T & UK artist P Money.
Originally produced by Timbaland, SK!TZ added his own flavor, reflective of the grime scene popular in the UK.
The single was premiered exclusively on MTV UK where it is currently in heavy rotation.
The video was quickly picked up and released by Complex, Noisey, HipHopDX, NahRight, 2DopeBoyz, Stereogum, IllRoots and more.
Emerson Windy continues to push the limits not only of his music, but has been innovative with product and marketing creating something never before seen in hip hop. He’s developed the first known weed scented scratch-n-sniff CD. When asked about the concept Emerson Windy said, “It just seems fresh, never been done, and a cool way people can interact more with my music.” Because of his unique sound, and fresh ideas, in a very short amount of time Emerson Windy has amassed a loyal fan base known as the Windyian Nation that continues to grow all over the world.
