The student of Music, Braheen Johnson is more than your average beat maker. He started out as a drummer at the age of 6, leading to his involvement in keyboards at the age of 9. Never schooled or trained, Braheen learned all by ear and eventually grew into a musician in his own nature.
By the age of 14 his love for production grew to the point where recording was a must. He started out by visiting a friend’s house (The McCrea Family) on a daily basis to play and record sounds. During this time he was also heavily involved with drill team drumming which he grew into a pioneer of sound and innovation.
Today, still a student of music, producer of many genres, Braheen still continues to study his craft to become one of the greatest producers ever. "I don't believe that anyone can be a producer, but there are many who can make beats. Producers create sound and innovate, beat makers may purchase pre-mastered sounds and put them to use." said Braheen when asked about music of today. He stated he loves to study music of the 60s and 70s during the days of bands such as E.W.A.F, The JBs, Fat Back and more.
Today he steps out with his first official album "Swag In A Bag" (2011). This was a long over due album and has listeners anxious to hear whats next. Skank is an innovator and risk taker, and has proven such with this self made album with no featured artists.
