TDE’s Mixed By Ali Talks The Art Of Mixing, Top Dawg And YG


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.
