TrackSlayerz are an American record production team, composed of music producers Dexter "Inf" Randall and Demetri "Price" Duncan.

Background[edit]

Inf (born (1989-02-20) February 20, 1989 (age 28)) grew up in a military family, traveling extensively within the U.S. and internationally during his childhood. This lifestyle "exposed (him) to a wide range of music from an early age." Price (born (1988-11-07) November 7, 1988 (age 28)) caught the music making bug after hearing "Next Episode" by Dr. Dre. Intrigued by the components of good music, Price began creating his own music in 2003.

Price crossed paths with Inf on Soundclick.com in 2005. They swapped beats but fell out of contact over time. However, in the summer of 2006, they reconnected and exchanged beats. During their detachment, Inf had been working at perfecting his use of FL Studio (then FruityLoops), which he was introduced to in 2001 and still credits as the "main weapon in the TrackSlayerz's production arsenal." Having grown in their production skills, they liked the development of each other's sounds and decided to work together and the TrackSlayerz production team was established.

Musical career[edit]

Their catalog includes Yung Joc's "Posted at the Store" featuring Gucci Mane and Yung Ralph, which was the lead single from 2009's The Grind Flu; Jim Jones' "Pulling Me Back" featuring Chink Santana, from Jones' 2009 release, Pray IV Reign[1] which debuted at number nine on the US Billboard 200 chat; as well as the Lloyd Banks track, "We Remain" from his 2010 mixtape, V.5. Most notably, TrackSlayerz are the sound behind T.I.'s 2010 comeback single, "I'm Back",[2] the first single from T.I. after serving a one-year prison sentence following his conviction for federal weapons charges. T.I.'s single "I'm Back" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 53rd Grammy Awards ceremony. T.I. was so impressed with how the TrackSlayerz's instrumentals complimented his lyricism, he signed the collective to a production deal with Grand Hustle Records.[3][4]
