“He would walk into the room when I was mixing and he would just listen. And, he would give me a grade. He’d say, ‘That’s an A, an A+, or he’d give a thumbs up or thumbs down,” Ali said during the brief sit-down.
This is only part one of this interview. But we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on the remaining sit-downs with Ali. Until then, listen to his come-up.
