Meet WondaGurl, Jay-Z’s 16-Year-Old Producer

This is just a nice thing: One of the producers on Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is Ebona Oshunrinde, a.k.a WondaGurl, a 16-year-old Canadian beatmaker. Below, she explains how she wound up on the album — basically, she'd worked with Travi$ Scott, sent a beat to him, and then surprise! It became "Crown" on Jay's new album. Look how relaxed she is about the whole thing. "Yeah, I'm 16 and in my parent's basement and I have a track on Jay's album. Normal teen stuff." Amazing.
