The Black Mob Group Inc. is a Management Production company formed in 1999 by Tony Galvin and Ernest Foxx. Tony had the idea of creating a production imprint of his own after leaving New York City and a prior situation that left him without a business partner.
Tony and Foxx began looking for local talent to produce, and assembled a collective of artists and released their first album entitled, “ The Capitol”- which was a group compilation. The album received rave reviews from critics and is rated in the Top 50 Miami Rap Songs released by Complex Magazine. The album was a joint venture deal with Will Records ADA/Warner Distribution.
The Group secured a Production Deal with Slip N Slide/ Atlantic Records and produced a string of Anthems which became national selling singles.
Tony Galvin is a classically trained musician from New World School of the Arts, whose instruments include piano and trombone. Evident in his production style is his passion for music which effortlessly is embedded throughout his hardest rap beats. The richness in his compositions can only come from a technical genius. A person who knows not just the sound of the instrument, but how to complement that sound within the arrangement of the composition.
Tony has produced alongside Grammy Award Singer Song writer Baby Face in a early recording for Karen White while she was signed to Face's La-Face Records. He did that while still in his teens. He has produced records for Biggie Smallz, LL Cool J and Sean Combs.
