Carl E. "Chucky" Thompson[1] is a hip hop/R&B record producer.[2] Thompson was a member of Bad Boy Entertainment's "Hitmen" team of in-house producers during the 1990s, and worked with Bad Boy mogul Sean Combs on material for artists such as The Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Evans.[3][4]

He was responsible for album productions for such projects as Mary J. Blige's "My Life" and Faith Evans' debut "Faith". On his own, Thompson has also worked with artists such as Kelly Price ("Love Sets You Free", 2000) and Nas ("One Mic", 2002).

He lent several productions to Disturbing tha Peace's latest artist, female vocalist Shareefa's debut and he also produced the bulk of Emily King's debut album East Side Story in 2007.[5] Thompson is known in the industry as the "Classic" producer. He has earned the respect for being one of the leaders in the innovation of Hip Hop and R&B.

Many of today's producers have taken his sound and expanded on his vision mainly from the profound and critically acclaimed Mary J. Blige's "My Life" album. Thompson recently teamed up with native Washingtonian, Raheem DeVaughn and created the #1 R&B hit "Woman" (which was also nominated for 2007 Best R&B Male Performance).
