The Heatmakerz is a hip-hop production duo, started by Rsonist originally from Kingston, Jamaica, now living in New York. The duo, consisting of Rsonist and Thrilla, rose to fame after providing beats to various releases of The Diplomats. The bulk of albums like Diplomatic Immunity and Juelz Santana's debut From Me to U were produced by The Heatmakerz. Their production style is based upon hard equalized snares and kicks, strong bass lines, strong hi-hats, snares and often sped-up soul samples. To this day, the Heatmakerz still use the same style of production. Timothy Hodge made an appearance on Beat Bangerz alongside Rsonist.
