This 72-Year-Old Man Taught Himself To Produce Trap & He’s Pretty Damn Good [WATCH]

It’s never too late to follow your dreams. Take 72-year-old Arthur DuBois for example. This ripe talent was discovered in studio by Chicago MC Add-2 — and now he’s completely blowing up.

“Bruh!! Today I met a 72yr old producer who makes TRAP MUSIC!!” Add-2 shares in the original tweet. “He said the doctor told him to stay in the house but instead of wasting away he used the time to teach himself how to produce beats. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 I’M SO INSPIRED!!!”

A little hype goes a long way. First came the retweets, then came interview requests from NPR and Rolling Stone, and then artists started sharing his work. Even big names like Jay-Z and T.I. have been tagged — and in the EDM realm, YehMe2. Now, it seems fellow producers are lining up to work with this man.

Making quality trap beats is one thing, but this guy pours his heart and soul into his music. Next step will be coming up with his producer tag, which DuBois hasn’t yet put much thought into. Any suggestions?

Listen and be inspired!
