Who is Fletcher Batts? 

In short, I got into the business side of Hip Hop via Vic XL. He added me on to assist with road manager duties for rap artist V.I.C. at the height of his career. I had already been on the independent creative side of music through my efforts as an artist.

Upon not getting the beats that I needed, I started producing.

Upon not hearing the records in the area played to the masses on radio or at parties, I became a DJ.

After that I began studying the business side of the industry while in college (and still to-date).

I came from a music family. My parents owned a club and my dad was a well known local DJ and radio station personality. My mother was a well known model and frequented with well known popular music artist; so I grew up with music. After spending a lifetime in music and 30+ years in Hip Hop I’ve learned one simple truth: this industry is more business than music and if you don’t know the business, you will just be making music for you, your friends and ya’ momma ‘dem.

These are my pajamas 🙂

I am here to help!
