Mark Batson

Music Composer

Summary

Mark Batson is an American record producer, arranger, and songwriter from Bushwick, Brooklyn, now based in Los Angeles.

As a co-writer and producer with Dr. Dre, he is responsible for Jay-Z's 2006 single Lost Ones, as well as tracks for Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game and Snoop Dogg. He has also worked with Dave Matthews Band, Alicia Keys, Anthony Hamilton, Nas, Maroon 5, and Beyoncé, among others.

Batson was formally trained in jazz piano at Howard University, before mixing hip hop sampling and drum programming with live instrumentation as part of the group Get Set V.O.P.
