Slept On Sunday shines a light on the best of what’s slept on in music and culture.
California-born musician/producer Paul Cabbin fiercely closed out the 2010s with credits on some of hip-hop and R&Bs biggest names, and it’s looking like this decade will be no different.
For example, In 2017 he had credits on Chris Brown’s “Heartbreak on a Full Moon”. Then in 2019 he helped produce 2 Chainz and Ariana Grande’s big hit “Rule The World”. Last year he was all over the place producing for artists like Wiz Khalifa, Teyana Taylor, French Montana, and T.I.
Now, only 2 months in to 2021, he’s keeping his foot on the gas and pushing that momentum forward with 2 huge placements on G-Eazy and Chris Brown’s “Provide”, and Eric Bellinger’s most recent project “1-800-HIT-EAZY”.

In a 2016 interview with Maschine Masters Cabbin classified his sound and style as very musical. “My sound is more musical,” he said, “More chords, more melodies. I rely more on that than the actual drums.”
He notes gospel as being a major influence on his style, alongside hip-hop and R&B. One of the first questions of the interview he answered rather swiftly. Saying that as a musician gospel has been a big influence on him because “That’s where the chords are.”
