The Runners


When you hear their signature "Ahhhh," you know The Runners produced the track. Comprised of longtime friends Andrew "Dru Brett" Harr and Jermaine "Mayne Zayne" Jackson, the duo crafted their first major record for Fat Joe in 2005, but it wasn't until they scored Rick Ross' street-influenced anthem "Hustlin'" that they skyrocketed into the big leagues. Now their track record includes hits for Lil' Wayne, Young Jeezy, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Usher, DJ Khaled and others. Nominated for Producer of the Year at the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards, the Orlando-based production team continues to flood the music market with their booming bass lines and snare-heavy rhythms.
