Wyldfyer is a music producer initially known for his production for his promo album (from Jay-Z), The Black Album: Classik. After receiving rave reviews and street buzz from Atlanta (his current home) to Philadelphia (his home town), Wyldfyer's album became legendary. Because of that, he was discovered by Saint Nick formerly of So So Def where he worked on "Time and Time Again", a song that appears on Missy Elliott's The Cook Book. From there Wyldfyer was introduced to L.E.S. After forming a relationship, Wyldfyer would then go on to produce tracks for Nas's "Hip Hop Is Dead", including "Money Over Bullshit", The original version of "Hope" and the highly anticipated collaboration between Nas and Jay-Z, "Black Republican".

After producing the much talked about Nas hit "War is Necessary" which appears in the best-selling video game, Grand Theft Auto IV,[1] Wyldfyer has recently recreated himself and collaborated with Down South Legend, Ludacris. "Last of a Dying Breed" (Previewed during the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards), which features Lil Wayne and "I do it for Hip Hop" which features the familiar duo of Nas and Jay-Z are two of the latest songs produced by Wyldfyer.

Wyldfyer's music can be heard on albums with almost every member of Black Hippy, TDE's super group made up of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul. His sound is very diverse with song's like Jay Rock's "Trapped In the Hood", Kendrick's west coast classic "Average Joe" off Overly Dedicated or the ultra soulful "Kush and Corinthians, a song that appears on Kendrick's critically acclaimed Section.80 album.

Wyldfyer has been featured in XXL for his work with Ludacris, Nas and Jay-Z as well as countless websites such as illroots, RapGenius, iStandardProducers, Nodfactor, Hiphopgame and many more.
