10 Hip Hop Albums WondaGurl Slayed

May 11, 2023

WondaGurl is the very fitting alias of super producer Ebony Oshunrinde


From being a protégé of legendary producer Boi-1da to being the first Black-Canadian woman to win the Juno Award for Jack Richardson Producer of the Year, there is no doubt that WondaGurl is an absolute star in the hip-hop world.


With over 45 awards and certifications and 400 official music credits including work with Kid Cudi and Travis Scott to her name, we could spend all day diggin' through her stellar discography such as…

1/ Kid Cudi - Man On The Moon III: The Chosen

We weren’t kidding when we said that WondaGurl is an absolute star – what better proof than her having worked with the famous “Man On The Moon”?!
Man On The Moon III: The Chosen is her first Kid Cudi cut in which she is credited as a Songwriter & Producer on tracks “Rockstar Knightz” and “4 Da Kidz”.

2/ Drake – If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late

We definitely aren’t running through the six with our woes with this one. Like with Cudi, this is her first Drake cut in which she is credited as a Producer on tracks “Used To” and “Company”.

3/ Pop Smoke – Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon

Alongside fellow talented creatives like 808Melo and Mike Dean, WondaGurl definitely went to the moon for the late Pop Smoke’s debut and final album.
She is credited as a Songwriter, Producer, Programmer and Performer on tracks “Bad Bitch From Tokyo (Intro)” and “Aim For The Moon”.

4/ Travis Scott – Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight

WondaGurl is a long-time close collaborator of Travis Scott, solidified by her publishing deal with Scott’s Cactus Jack Publishing group. 
Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight marks the second time that the two worked together on a full-length record, with her garnering a songwriting and production credit on the track “the ends”.


Her songwriting and production work on this project (“GANG GANG”) contributed to her 2021 Junos win for the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year award.
She also contributed to the title track.

6/ Travis Scott – ASTROWORLD

Another great credit with La Flame. WondaGurl brought the fire on this record, having songwriting and producing credits on “NO BYSTANDERS” and “CAN’T SAY”.

7/ Ski Mask The Slump God – STOKELEY

Goddess meets God. She helped gild Ski Mask The Slump God’s debut album STOKELEY, by contributing her songwriting and producing skills to the track “Get Geeked”.

8/ Travis Scott – Rodeo

This is “Straight Up!” perhaps WondaGurl’s most seminal work with Travis Scott as “Antidote” – the track that she co-wrote, produced and programmed – became her first Top 40 single. She also contributed to the song “90210” featuring Kacy Hill.


Another work that shows that she’s the life of the party. This release is her first credit with PARTYNEXTDOOR. She is credited as a Producer on the track “JUS KNOW” featuring Travis Scott.

10/ Beyoncé – Homecoming: The Live Album 

Put on your sparkles and get out your drums for this one. This was the live album that was on everyone’s lips in 2019 – with WondaGurl slaying the Songwriting on the track “Flawless / Feeling Myself (Homecoming Live)”.
