The history of Roc-A-Fella Records was shaped with several tracks produced by Ski Beatz. On the label's first release, Jay-Z's classic debut, Reasonable Doubt, Ski Beatz produced a number of the tracks. Last year, Damon Dash re-launched Roc-A-Fella Records and is returning the label to its former glory.

Among Damon Dash's first moves were signing Curren$y and reunting with Ski Beatz. Before his time with the re-vamped Roc-A-Fella, Curren$y was signed with Lil Wayne's Young Money. Ski Beatz recently discussed working with Jay-Z and Curren$y, both rappers have helped build Roc-A-Fella Records.

Ski Beatz has had the opportunity to work with Curren$y on both of his Pilot Talk albums. Also, Ski Beatz had the opportunity to work with Jay-Z on Reasonable Doubt. Despite Curren$y and Jay-Z being two different type of rappers, Ski Beatz has been able to draw comparisons. Ski Beatz said Curren$y's albums are like the Reasonable Doubt of the current time.

His reason for saying this is because, like Reasonable Doubt, Ski Beatz has laced both Pilot Talk albums with timeless music. People of both younger and older age can listen to the music and enjoy it for both the instrumental and the lyrics. Thinking back on his time working with Jay-Z, Ski Beatz remembered how he was convinced by Jay-Z to quit rapping to focus solely on production.
