Working With Chad Hugo and Other Producers
"Basically I like to work with a lot of engineers. I’m an engineering kind of guy, I like for them to interpret things and what I'm hearing in my head. I worked with Madd Matt, his real name is Matt Friedman, a lot on Fashion Show, just making the songs from scratch because I didn’t want to go into doing music with just songs and beats like, 'Send me some beats, I’m gonna lay it down.' When I hear something that’s dope and I gravitate towards that, I wanna work with that person or that piece or that producer. That’s why. We just make great shit together.

"I wanted to learn how to do production, so I really worked with tempos and drums, sound by sound. So those songs took me ten hours a piece. I was like, 'Alright, it’s taken me ten hours and I’m making it from scratch. I’m tired as fuck but I can do this.'
"I worked with Chad Hugo. Chad is crazy. I really like Chad, he’s someone that I can really relate to over stuff and be excited about at the same time. He definitely blessed me with some stuff like a dope ass beat that he didn't think that I was gonna do. He was just getting on me about certain shit."
