Tyshane Thompson, currently known as Beam (stylized in all caps) and formerly as Tyshane and Elite, is an American record producer, rapper, and songwriter. He is the son of dancehall and gospel reggae pioneer Papa San.[1]

Career[edit]

According to Thompson's father, he started producing at age ten.[2] He formed the now-disbanded production duo 808&Elite with Matt Massaro.

He first received notice when he produced for Andy Mineo on the tracks "Young", featuring KB, and "Michael Jackson", featuring Thi'sl, Rich Perez, R-Swift, and Bubba Watson, from the album Formerly Known in 2011.[1][2] In 2012 he produced the highly popular, Jamaican-tinged song "Black Rose" by Lecrae on the mixtape Church Clothes.[1][2][3] He also appeared in the final episode of the web-series Saturday Morning Car-Tunez, created by Andy Mineo, where he helped remix the Puff Daddy song "It's All About the Benjamins".[1][4] On July 6, 2012, Thompson and Matt Massaro, under the name 808&Elite, released the single "Me Monster", featuring Andy Mineo, from their upcoming beat-tape, Diamonds x Pearls.[5] The tape was made available two days later for free download exclusively through the Christian hip-hop website Rapzilla.[6] Thompson's talent was praised by critics when he and ThaInnaCircle produced the bass-heavy, East Coast style, reggae and dancehall-influenced song "Violence" by Lecrae from the Grammy-winning album Gravity, released on September 4, 2012.[7][8][9] In October, 2012, Thompson competed at the second Annual Rapzilla.com Beat Battle at the 2012 Flavor Fest.[10] Thompson, his father Papa San and brother Tyrone Andrew, are working on a collaborative project.[2] 808 & Elite now produces under Street Symphony's Track or Die label.[11] In addition to his work with his father and brother, Lecrae, and Andy Mineo, Tyshane has produced, both independently and as part of 808 & Elite, for artists such as 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Tedashii, Tracy T, SPZRKT, GABRL, and KIDD.
