James Fauntleroy II
Part of the Cocaine 80s clique with fellow producer No. I.D., James Fauntleroy II’s name can be spotted amply while flipping through the liner notes of 2013’s Billboard successes. Fauntleroy left his stamp on many of this year’s hot studio albums, co-writing the entirety of The 20/20 Experience with Justin Timberlake as well as providing assists to Jay Z, Drake, Big Sean and more. As a vocalist, James also jumped on the self-titled track from J. Cole’s Born Sinner album and a tune from Timbaland’s forthcoming album.
