"It's 1992, and the Real Untouchables is back ... I'm about to introduce you to my motherfuckin' posse." That's Master P on a rare Mama's Bad Boy-era 12-inch single. He's introducing the earliest version of his TRU gang, which includes Richmond rapper Chilee Powdah, P's brother C-Murder, and, scratching in the background, a young DJ Ammbush.
Not a bad intro. But Ammbush, born Torrance Scott, didn't consider himself a true producer until years later. Getting ahead of himself was never his style. Ammbush has built his career one piece at a time: from DJ, engineer, producer, and member of the longstanding East Bay DJ collective the Oakland Faders, to father of three and 20-year veteran of Bay Area music. But, jawing away at his Oakland studio one day this summer, you'd think he's just getting started.
