It takes a village to make an album. Dr. Dre was the executive producer, bossman, and visionary behind Compton, and he had at his disposal a team of some of the best hip hop producers money could buy, including Dem Jointz, DJ Dahi, and entire crew of Aftermath in-house artists.

Among these producers was a man named Focus… (the three dots are a part of his name) who has spent 25 years in the music industry. You may not have heard his name, but you have definitely heard of the artists he's worked with -- BeyonceChristina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Schoolboy Q, Slaughterhouse, The Game, Busta Rhymes, and 50 Cent, to name just a few. 

We called up Focus... at his home in Los Angeles to learn more about his prolific career and his role on Compton.
