Five Years Later, Thousand Times Reconnects With Industry Disrupter Christian Phifer. The producer partners with Phifer’s SCRYBE Streaming to make a way for his team.
Five years after their initial interaction in which Thousand Times flew cross-country for a 15-minute meeting with Christian, the producer reconnects with the music industry innovator.
Thousand Times will be releasing his upcoming music exclusively through SCRYBE Streaming, starting with Slime Season Vol 1. The record features production from Thousand Times & multi-platinum music producer Nico Nice Wit It, vocals from Maestro and M.A.C. K.I.L.L.A. and was engineered by Mixed by Wade and Grammy winner Wonder Arillo.
Scrybe Streaming offers a subscription-based model that allows musicians to make more money from streaming than with TIDAL, Apple Music, or Spotify.
We caught up with Thousand Times to find out more about the collaboration and what lies ahead. Here’s how it went.

Hey – great to catch up, congrats for the new projects. For those who don’t know, how would you describe what you currently do?
I’m a music producer first and foremost, I love making beats but also pulling together the various aspects of a record. Connecting the dots is my specialty!
It’s been a few years since we first spoke – what’s been happening with you and the music, and what drew you towards the work of Christian Phifer?
I feel we both have grown as professionals since our first meeting 5 years ago. To be part of the streaming service he has created is a dream come true.
Tell us about Scrybe – what inspired it, and what does it offer to the music world?
Scrybe Streaming’s main goal is to empower artists by compensating them fairly for creating music. With a subscription-based model, Scrybe rewards artists and connects fans.
What does the track Slime Season represent for you?
I am especially proud of this record because it brought together such a wide variety of talented artists, producer and engineers. Originally, the producer I collaborated with – Nico Nice Wit It – went by Bagg Slime, hence the name of the record. He rebranded but I still liked the name for the record.
How did you come to connect with Grammy Winner Wonder Arillo and Multi-Platinum Super Producer Nico Nice Wit It?
Instagram! I can’t stress how powerful that platform is to connect with people in your industry and beyond.
What do you have planned for the months ahead?
In the months ahead I would like to release 1-2 more tracks, and begin working on some music videos for the projects.
Is there anything else we need to know?
