Peep it:

On March 8th and 9th of 2008, hundreds of established and up-and-coming producers will descend upon Phoenix, Arizona to attend the annual ONE STOP SHOP PRODUCER'S CONFERENCE, masterminded by Sha Money XL's Money Management Group. The conference will feature top industry professionals, platinum track making producers, and new technology trends from companies like Microsoft, M Audio, and Traxxpad. It will also include video game tournaments, after parties hosted by NYC's most noted DJs, and the infamous One Stop Shop Beat Battle, presented by iStandard Producers & Sirius Satellite Radio. And most importantly, the industry workshops/panels, hosted by today's hottest tastemakers!

This year's OSS features "The Microsoft Technology Panel" hosted by Arif Gursel, a software test engineer on the Microsoft XBOX team, as well as "The Power Management Panel" which features Gee Roberson, Derick Jackson, Bernard Parks, Ryan Press and more. The 2008 One Stop Shop also boasts a Tastemaker Panel and a New Producer Panel, so it isn't surprising that this conference has captured the excitement of producers that have already blessed us with classic records. " This is the conference for those that are serious about making real moves in the industry... You gotta love it!" from Kanye West's mentor, NO I.D.

The lineup for the 2008 OSS include producers Swizz Beatz, DJ Toomp, the legendary DJ Premiere, Hi-Tek, DJ Quik, 9th Wonder, No ID, Trackboyz, Nottz, and more...Other panelists include: Shalik Berry (Def Jam), Jean Nelson (Atlantic), Lenny S., (Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam), Wendy Day (The Rap Coalition), Chuck Creekmur (, Bonsu Thompson (XXL), Julia Beverly (Ozone Magazine), Juan Madrid (Sony/ATV Publishing), Maani Edwards (Universal Publishing) and more. Plus artists like Young Buck, Lil Scrappy, Kurupt, Outlawz, Talib Kweli, Sic Osyrus and Riz are also slated to make appearances throughout the weekend.

Over 700 producers from around the world attended the One Stop Shop Producer's Conference in 2007. Producers flew in from all over the U.S., Africa, Bermuda, France, Canada, the UK, and more. "The future of the One Stop Shop is growth. I want this to go down in Hip-Hop history and be a major conference like Mixshow Power Summit, R&R, Sema or Midem. I want to continue to let new producers find their way through this industry and learn just who the key players are and what networking is about," Sha explains. Money Management Group teaches producers and artists the importance of branding. "It is so important to brand yourself in today's environment. You have producers dropping LP's like artists now." Sha states.
