Emerging as one of the leading rap producers of the late 2010s, scoring major hits with Playboi Carti’s breakout hit Magnolia, 6ix9ine’s Gummo and topping the album charts with Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake – in addition to working with Kanye West, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Young Thug and Young Nudy – Pi’erre Bourne has reshaped the sound of modern hip-hop and become one of rap’s most in-demand producers. Along the way, he’s amassed more than 220 million streams on Spotify with more than 2.6 monthly listeners.

 

Also active as a rapper, he is known for his mixtapes showcasing his atmospheric beats and auto-tuned crooning. He grabbed the hip-hop world’s attention when he produced Magnolia, shifting the landscape of hip-hop production. He later received acclaim for Sli’merre, his 2019 mixtape with frequent collaborator Young Nudy and recently collaborated with the legendary Juicy J on Space Age Pimpin’.

 

In 2021, Pi’erre won his first Grammy Award for his production work on Kanye West’s Jesus Is King album. Later that year, he hit number 35 on the Billboard 200 with his second studio album, the lauded The Life of Pi’erre 5 (released on Interscope via Pi’erre’s label imprint SossHouse), featuring appearances by Playboi CartiLil Uzi Vert, and Sharc. Rolling Stone Australia listed The Life of Pi’erre 5 at number 9 in their “20 Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2021”, stating, “Pi’erre is smooth, commanding the contours of his production to make some of the year’s most genuinely fun music” and “Pi’erre Bourne just might be on his way to a Kanye-esque crossover … essentially reshaping the sound of modern hip-hop before being able to even buy a drink.”

 

Then, of course, there’s Pi’erre’s world-famous producer tagline, lifted from an old sketch on The Jamie Foxx Show“Yo Pi’erre, you wanna come out here?” – becoming a viral phenomenon.

 

Pitchfork declared in 2020, “You can’t have a conversation about the best rap producers of the last few years without mentioning Pi’erre Bourne”, and he has made his name cranking out beats that pair airy video-game melodies with classic trap drums. His breakthrough 2016 mixtape series The Life of Pi’erre was recorded while working as an engineer at Epic Records in Atlanta, with the trilogy becoming the foundation for his future sound, full of dreamy production and his own light-hearted, lovestruck singing.

 

“Known for beats for 21 Savage, Young Thug and Chance the Rapper, the South Carolinian producer dances gracefully through genres in his live show.”

The Guardian

 

“Pi’erre managed to keep the crowd’s energy electric for the entire set. There was never a dull moment, as the live transitions from song to song were just as good as the transitions when listening to the album itself.”

“His delivery is rapid-fire and rhythmic, like a rapper’s, but he sings his bars rather than rapping them, often with a plaintive tremble that’s closer to Adele than Ice Cube.”

Pi’erre Bourne is responsible for crafting the breakout hits of many prominent hip-hop acts today, and without him, hip-hop’s cultural landscape would look very different. Often imitated, never duplicated, his beats are built on a happy, trappy latticework of drum sounds, synths, flutes and vocals — all built from scratch and all distorted and tweaked in ways only Pi’erre’s brain can muster. His lyrics are studded with millennial pop culture references, name-dropping Lilo and Stitch, SpongeBob and Patrick, Dora the Explorer, Stranger Things and Back To The Future. “Wish I could go back in time, then I could save your life, Hop in the DeLorean, yeah, I’m Marty McFly” – “Fortune Cookie”

 

Don’t miss seeing hip-hop’s future, Pi’erre Bourne, when he brings his unique blend of hip-hop and rapid-fire rap to venues in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland in December.
