 Boi-1da Biography

Matthew Jehu Samuels (born October 12, 1986), professionally known as Boi-1da (/ˌbɔɪˈwʌndə/ boy-won-da), is a Canadian hip-hop producer from Toronto, Ontario. He has produced for artists and groups such as Clipse, The Diplomats, Drake, Eminem, Jay-Z, Joe Budden, G-Unit, Nicki Minaj, k-os, Das Racist, Lecrae, Nas, Bizzle, Talib Kweli, Saukrates, Kendrick Lamar, and Chris Brown among others. He significantly collaborates with other producers who co-produce on his tracks including, The Maven Boys, Stephen "Koz" Kozmeniuk, Vinylz and Allen Ritter.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Samuels moved to Canada when he was three, and grew up in the North York and Scarborough districts of Toronto. He was also raised in Ajax, Ontario, where he currently resides. At the age of eight, his mother bought him a Casio keyboard, and at the age of 15, a friend had introduced him to FL Studio (formerly Fruity Loops). Without any formal musical training, he started using the FL Studio beat-making program. A few years later, he won three consecutive Battle of the Beatmakers championships; because of this accomplishment, he was given a spot in the Battle of the Beatmakers judging panel.

His first production work was at the age of 18, when he worked on two tracks on a mixtape (Room for Improvement) for Drake.

While Boi-1da is known to use samples in his productions, he often incorporates live instrumentation and an air horn sound effect (more commonly used in dancehall and reggae). He currently uses FL Studio 12 to make beats, previously, he used Fruity Loops 3.56, 7 XL and 9. Boi-1da was influenced by producers such as Dr. Dre, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, and The Neptunes.

Dr. Dre appeared on the remix of "Set It Off" by Kardinal Offishall, produced by Boi-1da. In an interview with FLOW 93.5, Boi-1da revealed that he was working on beats for Dr. Dre's highly anticipated album, Detox, which was to be released in 2011. However, the album has yet to be released, and none of the released or leaked tracks by Dr. Dre feature Boi-1da's production. He's currently working with songwriter Sean Garrett, has submitted tracks for Usher, and worked with the Jonas Brothers in studio. He's also working on Busta Rhymes' upcoming album, Extinction Level Event 2.

Boi-1da produced the hit song "Not Afraid", by Eminem, which premiered April 29, 2010; and "hahahaha jk?", from Das Racist's debut album Sit Down, Man, which was released September 2010.

In April 2011, Boi-1da was confirmed to be working on Drake's second album, Take Care, which was released November 15, 2011.

Boi-1da has worked with the rapper Lecrae on his song "Gimme a Second" from his mixtape Church Clothes. He has also collaborated with the rapper Bizzle for his album titled The Good Fight, released in May 7, 2013. He is also a member of Drake's October's Very Own with Noah "40" Shebib and T-Minus.

Boi-1da produced "Party Favors" for Tinashe for her sophomore studio album, Joyride. The single features Young Thug.

On January 8, 2016, Kanye West released a song titled "Real Friends" in which he credits Boi-1da for the sample.
