2014 was a huge year for London on da Track (and Tyga and Young Thug for that matter). The mid-tempo track is slightly out of character for our subject, but Tyga and Thugger feel right at home as they exchange bars. For Thugger, this came after the massive "Stoner," and for Tyga, this helped to hype up The Gold Album. For London, it was the first time one of his productions charted!
10 Essential London On Da Track Productions
"About The Money" comes off T.I.'s 2014 record Paperwork. With his proteje Young Thug on the feature, the two both kick pretty solid verses and trade off on hooks. The song was Paperwork's lead single, and charted up to #10 on the US Rap charts. It's just another notch in T.I.'s belt, but perhaps a more meaningful victory for the younger London on da Track.
This is the quintessential, feel-good Rich Gang track. "Lifestyle" brings Thugger and Quan together to discuss why life is grand. Both artists do the damn thing, and its all accompanied with a visual that will motivate you to get your paper up. It may be no coincidence that "Lifestyle" doubles as London's most successful track in terms of sales.
Before Young Thug and Lil Wayne had 'beef,' they had a collaboration track. There's no doubt that the two have a similar style, and Thugger has gone on the record to call Wayne his favorite rapper before. Together, with a London on da Track beat, they create a solid single that acted as a single off Rich Gang 2.
Rich Gang featuring Juvenile and Drake - Sho Me Love
Here's a Rich Gang track without Thugger or Quan on it. Drake says all of four words on the track, but Juvenile rides a magnificent London beat, making this an essential production from the young'n.
Waka Flocka Flame - Randy Savage
Waka and London linked up for this one in 2012, for Waka's wild Salute Me or Shoot Me 4 (Banned from America) mixtape. The thumpin' instrumental no doubt paved the way for more big names to reach out to London for some of that magic he creates.
Young Thug featuring Duke - With That
Barter 6 was a polarizing project. At first, it started a Wayne vs. Thugger beef, and when it finally came out it was slightly surprising that it didn't have club bangers on it, instead sticking to relatively chill cuts from Thugger. London did four of the album's instrumentals, including track two, "With That."
Boosie Badazz - Retaliation
Boosie's comeback has been pretty epic to watch. His 2015 album Touch Down 2 Cause Hell featured big features (Rick Ross, Jeezy, T.I., J. Cole) and big producers to boot. London only took care of one instrumental, but it's a pretty epic, dark trap track. Boosie shouts him out on the second verse too, which must be pretty surreal for a young, still rising producer to hear.
Again? Young Thug again? You're damn right. The two are consistently at their best when they're with each other, and on this one, Gucci Mane comes along for the ride, kicking things off with a bang...
"I told my bitch to dye her hair red like Dennis Rodman
If Gucci Mane got so much money then why he robbin'?
We thirty deep, we come from the streets, nigga, we mobbin'"

Adele is waiting on Drake to ring her hotline for an official remix.
An introduction to Atlanta producer London On Da Track.
Atlanta's hotbed of talent has birthed a ton of huge artists in the past five years. Amongst them is London on da Track, a twenty-four year old ATLien who has provided beats for the likes of Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, and many more. You probably know him best for his work with Young Thug, who has been his go-to collaborator for the better part of his career.
In the late 00's, London was giving away his beats for free just for the exposure. It paid off, because the practice eventually led to a deal with Cash Money Records. Since then, he's had a few Billboard hot 100 singles pop up from producing beats for T.I., Rich Gang, and Tyga. We've decided to deliver his ten most essential productions to you, our reader. Enjoy the southern trap beats from one of the game's most exciting producers.
