D&D Studios


D&D Studios is a primarily hip-hop recording studio located in New York City on the west side of 37th street, New York City, with artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Jay-Z, Jeru The Damaja, KRS-ONE, and Black Moon counted amongst its patrons.

The studio was founded by Doug Grama and David Lotwin, and a label of the same name (D&D Records) was created from the studio in the 1990s. The recording studio managers were David "Carpi" Carpenter and Paul Twumasi. In 2003, one of the most famous D&D Studios producers, Gang Starr's DJ Premier, bought D&D from its owners and renamed it HeadQCourterz in honor to his friend with the same name who died the same year.
