interview, swizz beatz, lil wayne, president carter

Angel Aponte (@Onhel) graduated high school at the bottom of his class with no idea what to do with his life.

After realizing he could make music a career he made music his life.

Four years later Onhel found himself engineering  tracks for Swizz Beatz on Beyonce’s B Day album and is now Lil Wayne’s recording engineer and produces out of his studio in Union City, New Jersey.

You’ll hear Onhel discuss how he made his way into the music business, the importance of extra effort and that when an opportunity presents itself, take it.

“I never left the studio. I would shower there, I would have my mail delivered there, I never left.” – Onhel
