Jeffrey Bass (/bæs/ BAS;[1] born May 16, 1961)[citation needed] is an American music producer from Detroit, Michigan, best known as one half of the Bass Brothers and for his work with Eminem.[2]


At age 16, Bass, along with 4 of his childhood friends formed Detroit-based R&B group Dreamboy.[3] In 1980, when Bass was 19 years old, Dreamboy was signed to Qwest Records, a record label created by Quincy Jones that same year. The group released their debut album in 1983, and a follow-up in 1984 before their contract expired and they were dropped from the label in 1985.[4]

Bass would eventually go on to co-produce the song "Lose Yourself," alongside Eminem which won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 75th Academy Awards.[2] The song was featured in the film 8 Mile, which starred Eminem in his movie debut. Eminem and Bass previously shared a Grammy Award for 1999's Best Rap Album, The Slim Shady LP.[5] Bass was also the speaker in "Public Service Announcement" and "Public Service Announcement 2000" (from The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP respectively),[6] two tracks that serve as introductions to the albums they are featured in.
