Producers Jerz & The Fatman have just released their latest single, “Essence,” captivating listeners with their distinct sound and musical versatility. With a war-chest of career-propelling hit beats, this dynamic duo has established themselves as sought-after producers for artists known, unknown, and yet to be born.
Jerz & The Fatman’s impressive resume includes working on the 2009 Ecstatic Tour of rapper and actor Mos Def (now known as “Yasiin Bey”) and the EA Sports™ 2010 NBA Jam Tour. They have also produced music for notable artists such as Treach of Naughty By Nature, Cyhi da Prynce, Rahman Apollo, Whosane Pangae, EssVee, Dynasty, Niara, Panama, I-20, Anwar Supastar, and Mos Def.

The duo consists of “Jerz” Kevin May, born on September 6, 1983, in Livingston, New Jersey, USA, and “The Fatman” Kenneth Bernard Wynn, born on January 23, 1984, in Orange, New Jersey, USA. They crossed paths in 2002 during their Senior Year at Clifford J. Scott High School in East Orange, New Jersey, introduced by a mutual friend who recognized their shared love for music. Although their initial collaboration was short-lived due to Jerz’s relocation to Atlanta for college, they reunited in 2007 when Jerz returned to New Jersey.
Setting up a studio in Southern New Jersey, Jerz and The Fatman spent countless hours honing their craft and perfecting their sound. The name “Jerz and the Fatman” initially started as a joke but stuck due to its catchy and memorable quality.
The music of Jerz & The Fatman is a unique blend of sounds and rhythms, infused with old-soul reincarnations. Their compositions are crafted from the deep reverberations they feel within themselves, resulting in authentic and organic music that is never forced.
