Thomas Lee "Tommy" Brown (born May 1, 1986), professionally known as TB or TB Hits, is an American record producer and songwriter from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He learned from production greats Roy Hamilton and Rodney Jerkins of "Darkchild" while working alongside them. Brown produced for major artists like Wyclef Jean, Jennifer Lopez, Shontelle, Ray J, Ludacris, Black Eyed Peas[1] and many more while signed under "Darkchild" production team from 2008 to 2012.

In 2011, Brown was working on projects with Travis Porter, Ludacris, Kelly Rowland and Trey Songz, among others.

Producing, songwriting and recognition[edit]

Before working in music, Brown worked at Sears in Atlanta, Georgia. Every night he would hand out around 50 CDs with his songs on them and snippets of The Notorious B.I.G's "Ten Crack Commandments" over the tracks. He was finally contacted by Gorilla Zoe who invited Brown to work in the studio with him.[2]
