Dominick J. Lamb (born 21 February 1977), better known by his stage name Nottz, is an American record producer and rapper from Norfolk, Virginia. Nottz has produced for some of the biggest names in hip hop, including Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, The Game, Pusha T, Scarface and J Dilla. Nottz samples from old, primarily soul, records and film soundtracks to reconstruct new beats.
Some of Nottz's earliest production work was on the Rawkus Records compilation Lyricist Lounge, Volume One, in 1998. He then produced three tracks on Busta Rhymes' E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front that same year, after Busta heard one of his beat tapes.
In 2010, he released his debut solo album, You Need This Music, on which he produces and raps. That same year, he worked with rapper Asher Roth on the collaborative The Rawth EP, released a free download. In 2013, he collaborated with Blu on the EP Gods in the Spirit, and collaborated with the rapper again in 2016 on the EP Titans in the Flesh. In 2015, he released the album Home Sweet Home, a collaboration with Rapper Big Pooh.
