Bio

TOLLAHMANIA formerly known as "Ayatollah" is a Hip-Hop producer from Queens, New York who has produced for predominantly New York-based rappers including Mos Def, R.A. The Rugged Man, Tragedy Khadafi, Wordsworth, Vast Aire, Afu-Ra, Guru, M.O.P., Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah as well as many others. Broadly speaking Tollah's production encompasses a soulful, authentic east coast hip-hop sound which has brought him steady success and acclaim since the late 1990's.

Tollah first received main-stream recognition after producing Rawkus rapper Mos Def's hit "Ms Fat Booty", the first single off Mos Def's "Black on Both Sides" album; whilst subsequently receiving a gold plaque for probably his most well-known track to date, Styles P's hit "My Life" featuring Organized Konfusion legend Pharoahe Monch, which appeared on the Rawkus Records compilation Soundbombing III.

Tollah is a favored producer of many Queensbridge MCs in particular, having worked with Cormega on "Rap's a Hustle" on his debut "The Realness", as well as Tragedy Khadafi, Capone n Noreaga
and Big Noyd.

He has released three instrumental albums, 2003's unofficial debut "So Many Reasons to Rhyme" and since then in 2006, "Listen", on Nomadic Wax and "Now Playing" on Nature Sounds. He has also worked with hip hop legend Rakim on an unreleased song from The Wash soundtrack entitled "A Cold Feeling".

He recently became the producer for the group T.H.U.G. Angelz, with Wu-Tang Clan affiliates Hell Razah and Shabazz the Disciple, and produced a majority of their first collaborative album titled "Welcome to Red Hook Houses".
