The résumé of Norman "MouseQuake" Barrett speaks for itself. His national credits for production and engineering work include Lil' Wayne, Nas, David Banner, UGK, Kevin Gates and ScarFace, to name a few. Locally he's crafted and cured beats for Rakim Al Jabbaar, Stone Mecca, DQ Hampton, Flower Child, Shoose McGee, Flexinfab and on and on. MouseQuake's profession can be a thankless job. When the finished product is streamed or performed onstage, it's easy for artists and fans to forget about the person who created the instrumental. What differentiates MouseQuake is that what he provides to the DFW hip-hop community is deeper than beats and proper EQ levels. He's a mentor who shares wisdom and experiences aimed at helping local artists become the best version of themselves.
