Cordele Georgia producer, Get Cool, of Atlantic Records, is referred to as one of the hottest producer in the south. Cool proves to be exactly what they say he is, scoring opportunities to work on hot tracks with artists like Ashanti and Cee-lo Green.

Get Cool has been in the industry as a producer for about 14 years and while looking back on his career, he seems to be pleased with his repertoire thus far.

“I got started back in the day, I just loved music. I was always into music, but Boyz II Men was singing, I was trying to sing like Boyz II Men, I was trying to sing everything,” said Cool. “I was trying to sing and went from being in a singing group to going in the studio and liked the production … we used to sing off of whatever and my mom got me a keyboard and I thought about being a producer back then. I started making my own tracks and everything and it just went from there.”

Get Cool looks up to super producer Timbaland as one of his biggest inspirations and credits him with being one of the best producers in the game thus far which speaks volumes about the type of character Get Cool really is. As he puts it, “Timbaland is the “god” of music. I have studied his work so long I can easily tell his music as soon as I hear it.”

Get Cool has worked on projects with David Banner, Goodie Mob, T-Pain, Juvenile and many more over the course of his career.  The Cordele Georgia Super producer highlights that it was actually the song with David Banner that earned him a placement with Atlantic Records.

The song that I produced on the Goodie Mob album helped even more to springboard my career to the next level and garnered me a even more recognized name with music insiders.

Even while that was a good look for me musically, people are not aware that it was actually my work with David Banner and the song called “On Everything” featuring Twista. It received heavy spins on the radio several years ago and because of the success of that song in particular, I was getting much better situations.

Currently Get Cool is working on Cee-lo Green’s solo album and also with Ashanti on her comeback album. Cool speaks about how much he likes when artists take chances and Cee-lo Green especially, is known for doing just that.

“Don’t be scared to take chances, create their own style… that’s the main thing I love about working with Cee-lo. I can go all the way left field and Cee-lo wont care because he’s about to go all the way left field anyway. I love that.”

Movies are also a part of Get Cool’s list of things accomplished. He has produced and rapped on a slew of songs that has set him on untouchable heights in the industry. These movies include “Step Up 3D,” that he did two songs on, one of which was the mega hit “Shawty Got Moves.”  “Let Me See It, ” the other song from “Step Up 3D”  featuring Petey Pablo also appeared on Season 4 of the TV show Friday Night Lights. His presence was felt in “Stomp The Yard 2” where he did four songs and the trailer for the film. 

His production for the songs “Super Freak” for the TV show “The Arrow” on NBC, and “Go” on the video game “Midnight Club Los Angeles” for XBox and the Playstation 3, both prove Get Cool to be the master of versatility.

Get Cool shared some words of wisdom for up and coming producers and that was that should they should remember that being diverse in creating hot tracks is very important.

“Don’t be a one way producer, that’s not a producer in my book. If a country group comes to you and say we need country records, you’re supposed to have country records.”
