What I Learned as a Classical Composer Working with Kanye, No I.D. & Big Sean
How Johan Lenox went from listening to Kanye’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ to working with him, No I.D., Big Sean, and more.
Johan Lenox is an artist, classical composer and producer who has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, Travis Scott, Nas, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, Lil Nas X, 070 Shake, Snoh Aalegra, among others. Lenox’s songs, which he produces largely himself, explore a feeling of suburban ennui and anxiety about growing up, often viewed through a darkly humorous, self-deprecating lens. All of his work utilize classical instrumentation juxtaposed against modern production.
