Producer 9th Wonder discusses auditioning beats for Jay Z, working with Erika Badu, and teaching music history. Later 9th goes on to talk about the importance of saving older work and doing other thing besides making beats.
I made the actual beat for Erykah Badu’s honey seven years ago. That’s why I say, everybody save your beats, because you never know who’s gonna like what.
I tell beatmakers all the time, you gotta do more than beats. If you want your career to go right, you just gotta do more than beats.
