You state that you are an engineer as well? How did you get started?
“YouTube tutorials lol, that all I can say about that.”
A lot of producers teach themselves how to produce music. It is becoming increasingly more available to find tutorials online which previously would not have been as achievable. If you are interested in learning the basics of the current FL Studio 12, below is an in-depth video tutorial.
What has been your most successful song you have produced? Why do you think that is?
“Jurp – Bankroll. The beat to it is amazing, obviously because I produced it.”
Which artists have you worked with? Who would you work with in the future if you had the chance?
Who do you think is the best in the rap game currently? Which popular producer do you think is the best at the moment and why?
“Young Thug is the best artist out by far. Pi’erre Bourne is probably the best producer out right now. All of his beats are crazy.”
You state that you believe you are creative and stand out, why do you think that? Is your uniqueness replicated through your music?
“I know that my music doesn’t sound like half of these guys making it right now. I think my melodies are so much more different than the majority and I love adding weird effects to my drums. I always compare my beats to alien sounds. I don’t like to think I’ve ever made a bad beat, but everybody has. But I haven’t.”
