History

808 Mafia was founded in 2010 when rapper Waka Flocka Flame came up with the idea of a production team, made of his frequent collaborators Lex Luger and Southside. The group quickly expanded, adding a number of upcoming and affiliated producers, and is currently signed to Flame's label Brick Squad Monopoly. In addition to Waka Flocka Flame, 808 Mafia has produced tracks for many notable artists such as Gucci Mane, Future, 2 Chainz, Chief Keef, Young Thug, Fredo Santana, Juicy J and Young Scooter among others. Its members have also independently worked on songs with Kanye West, Jay-Z, Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Meek Mill, and DJ Drama.
