Los Angeles, CA – Two-9 came through last week and took over the DX Live offices. Literally.
The seven-man squad dominated the entire table and shared stories of nights so lit Rick James (#RIP) would be proud. Among all the debauchery-laced tales, the seven man, vowel-hating crew also spoke a little bit about the new album FRVR which came out earlier this month on Mike WiLL Made It’s label EarDrummers Entertainment.
As for working with the mogul/hitmaker Mike Will himself, the Two-9 MCs said when it comes time to work the super producer goes into beast mode. “He’s so different when he’s workin’. He’s really focused and really intense and he’s hands-on as fuck.
“He’s really [a producer]” said CeeJ. “[He’ll be like] ‘Go in there and say this. No, say it like this.’ He don’t make beats. He produces! Don’t get me wrong he’s making beats but, anybody can make a beat but it takes a special person to produce.”
Curtis Williams added, “Mike gets into mixing of the song, mixing that’s how we are so it’s tight to be with somebody like Mike that understands that.”
Check out the full interview with Two-9 and be sure to tune in to #DXLive every Thursday from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. EST and send in your music submissions for Trent, Marcel, Cherise and Jake to critique. If it’s hot we just might post it on HipHopDX.com.
