Few people have impacted music and worked with as many superstars as Teddy Riley.
From co-producing half of Michael Jackson’s album “Dangerous” to co-founding Blackstreet and working with the likes of JAY Z, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Mary J. Blige, and Lady Gaga, Riley has established himself as one of the industry’s most accomplished talents. His mentor, Quincy Jones, once said that he “personifies the balance between soul and science.”
