Jay-Z was getting set to go into full album mode, and naturally, given the power he has, he brought together some of the best producers in the game. With the likes of Pharrell, Timbaland, and Swizz Beatz all working on the album you would think a 16-year-old girl would have absolutely no chance to make it on the album right?
Ebony Oshunrinde, who goes by producer name Wondagurl, said she was inspired by a beat made by Travis Scott. She then decided to make a beat of her own, and send it out to Travis Scott, who is a producer for Kanye West, and Jay-Z. Scott received the beat and told Wondagurl he would do some things to it, and before she knew it she was told Jay-Z would be using the beat for his new album reports XXL.
Oshunrinde, an Ontario, Canada native, is credited with producing track number eight on Magna Carta Holy Grail, titled Crown reports Fuse.
