Kendrick Lamar’s Engineer, MixedByAli, Gives Some Insight On The Rapper’s Upcoming Album
14th of April 2021 was the fourth anniversary of Kendrick Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning fourth album, DAMN. The project later went on to win big at the 2018 Grammys, taking home five awards including Best Rap Album and Best Music Video. Since the release of DAMN , Kendrick Lamar is yet to release a new solo album and his fans have continued to wait for his next project, TDE’s in-house engineer, MixedByAli, who has worked on all of Lamar’s albums, gave a little insight about the rapper’s forthcoming project.
“I would say, every album that he has dropped since Good Kid has come with a different feeling so just look forward to Kendrick obviously expressing himself in the most creative way– the most highest of the creative way,” The sound engineer told Complex during an interview. “How he works, I’ve never seen it before. The recording process, the thought process of piecing an album together and sequencing it. Things like that is what keeps guys like me great. Watching his work ethic… You would expect someone like Kendrick to be at home and sitting back– nah, he still comes in on time and is punctual.”
