Hiero Producer Series: Snupe

Installment #4 of the Hiero Producer Series: Snupe

Snupe is the oddball of the Hieroglyphics camp. He got kicked out of the group back in ’96 over “creative differences”. The Hiero crew is incredibly tight-knit, so I’m not sure how Snupe managed to piss off enough members to the point where they’d kick him out. Whose girl did he step to, and did he mean to?

You can’t front on the beats, though. Most of the tracks that he produced on his ’94 debut “Like It Should Be” are outstanding, and while he hooked up the rest of the crew with only four tracks, they’re all excellent.

    Shit, I forgot he did "You're In Shambles" too.

    Damn, sucks he got the boot.

  2. Boothe says:

    I could be mistaken, but I think Toure produced the First Sermon Remix.

    I think a lot of people were so busy dissing snupe for not being "freestyle-ie", that his production work was largely ignored. His beats were tight.

    You're In Shambles, Never No More Remix, Go Back To School…all outstanding.

  3. Roy Johnson says:

    Boothe – Good call. The "First Sermon" Remix was produced by both Snupe and Toure, so you will see it on the latter's installment as well.

    As far as my favorite beat is concerned, I have a hard time choosing between "Go Back To School", "You're In Shambles", and the remix for "Never No More".

  4. Boothe says:


    He was still around after the Jive Party incident.

    During the time Hiero was recording 3rd Eye Vision, Snupe was basically doing the shit he rapped about in Brown Sugar…with a crew member's sister.

    "but i'm not supposed to be caught with these…"

    Dude got caught, and it was a wrap.

  5. MD says:

    Oh shit. Man, you'd think he'd tread lightly after fucking up once.

    I think "Brown Sugar" just became a track to skip from now on…

  6. I'm a WHITE Nigga Whut!!!! says:

    He got caught fucking Casual's sister and his response was "I didn't mean to".

  7. T.R.O.Y. says:

    From the "Like it should be" my favourite is "Give it up"
    And definitely "Never no more" is one of his best works ever.
