Mike Dean is Executive Producing Desiigner’s Debut Album

As if Desiigner didn’t have enough good things going his way with being signed to G.O.O.D Music and having his debut single be #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row, he has legendary producer Mike Dean producing his debut album. In an interview with Billboard, Dean spoke on a lot of things including dropping that gem. He also gave some thoughts on the 19 year old artist, which are interesting to read. Read Dean’s comments below:

Do you see yourself executive producing more now that you got a taste for it?

Yeah, I’m supposed to be doing Sky Ferreira’s album, which is kind of a scheduling nightmare. I’m doing Travis’ album, I’m executive producing Desiigner’s album…

How is it working with Desiigner?

He’s a lot more of an artist than you think he is. He’s not just some Future knockoff. He talks like that — he sounds like he’s got Auto-Tune on his voice in real life. He talks like Future raps, which is weird.

It’s crazy he’s from Brooklyn.

I don’t know where he got his music influence. Just like that old shit that I had, the shit with A$AP Rocky and Yams and all that shit. Like Yams said they grew up on that music on the Internet. Me and Plain Pat were talking about Desiigner. To older people, listening to music is like soul music or old rock music. To Desiigner though [what’s out now] is all the music he knows.
