No disrespect to ScHooLboy Q, but Mixed By Ali could easily be dubbed Man of the Year. If it wasn’t for Top Dawg’s in-house engineer, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city and Q’s Oxymoron wouldn’t be the highly-praised rap opuses we cling to today. The crazy-haired mixer took a break from the boards to speak with B.Dot of Rap Radar in a loaded interview on his incessant work ethic (12-hour sessions? Easy!), creating the TDE sound and stepping outside the crew to work with old time friend YG. Tune in to the Q&A below.
