Tell us about the new mixtape Blue Dream & Lean. What can people expect to hear?
You about to hear hamburgers and fries – I know you done tasted hamburgers and fries, but you about to hear it. That means it’s the whole combo. The music is straight gangsta, get high, all that, all in one. You got a little bit of the old Triple 6 mixed with the new Triple 6. It’s crazy.
Who do you have featured and what about the production?
I got production by Sonny Digital – I did production myself – Crazy Mike, AOne, Lex Luger, Harry Fraud, Yung Ced. As far as features, I got my little brother Wiz Khalifa (Stoner’s Night 2), I got A$AP Rocky on there, SpaceGhostPurrp, Kee – an artist out of ATL, the Young Nigga Movement, Project Pat, Alley Boy, 2 Chainz – that’s my brother. It’s jammin’. There’s something on there for everybody – chicks, street niggas, niggas in jail, get high niggas, all in one.
You’ve been working with Lex Luger for a while. Is he your main go-to guy for beats now?
I call it the Young Nigga Movement – Lex Luger, Sonny Digital, Southside, AOne, Yung Ced – all these up-and-coming producers are my go-to guys. I like they beats, they are the future of Hip Hop music. I produce and make beats myself, but I like working with other producers too. It’s a new sound, these guys are talented. I keep my ear to the streets and I know music.
