MB Salone is a US-based producer and audio engineer from Freetown, Sierra Leone. Best known for his mainstream introduction Lil Key’s “Shorty Right There,” but before he was exposed to the mainstream landscape, he burst onto the local scenes in the United States and Africa with a unique production style and fast-growing resume.

In 2018, he dropped his debut beat tape with Da Plug. The 10-beat body of work showcased Salone’s enriched sound with heavy cultural elements, groovy bass and radio-friendly mid-tempo bounce. The project was about the diverse creativity, inspiration and respect he has for several of today’s super producers.
