@ all the people acting like they KNEW engineers discos before Kanye gave them shine..
I've known ab Mike Dean for a while now but if you REALLY knew about Mike Dean in 96-97 then you are fu*kin 40
I damn sure ain't 40, & I've known about Mike Dean since the Rap-A-Lot hey day. I just know how to open up a fu*king CD & read, really.
Nah, but this cat from back in the day was a Down South/West Coast hip-hop head. And I was East Coast all day. So I'd put him on to say, Midnight Marauders
, & he would let me hold some Spice 1 or Mr. Scarface Is Back
. 'Face was his favorite MC. (Speak to pretty much any n*gga from D.C. & they can't be convinced 'Face and/or 'Pac aren't the greatest MCs ever) And that's how I got introduced to Mike Dean . . .
The n*gga was a bamma for real, but he put me on to some classics. So wherever you are now, fu*k n*gga - Thank you.
