DY Krazy speaks with XXL about producing for artists like Lil Baby, Juice Wrld, Future and more.
Lil Uzi Vert s Lullaby. Here, Krazy speaks about his growing track record in the 808 Mafiasuper team. XXL: What did you think about Lil Baby and EST Gees performance on Real As It Gets? DY Krazy: I fuck with it. Lil Baby is one of the main artists I work with. I knew he was going to do his part on the beat because I imagined him on that. And then EST Geewhen I heard his verse I was like, Damn, he really showed out on that muthafucka. He aint get carried. He came with it. How would you describe the feeling of working with an artist as theyre popping off and leveling up? Yeah, thats all Ive ever done, though, forever. Me and Southsideand TM88and 808 Mafia. We work with the breaking artists that are really breaking. Were the ones who let everybody in the industry know that these people are talented. The people who we believe in always end up being the biggest artists in the game. And we see it before anybody sees it. What do you consider to be your top five beats? I have to say Never Gon Lose because thats the first beat Ive ever made for Future. That was a big inspiration and big dream for me and then it happened. I can say Home Body is one of them songs. Durk wasnt like the hottest artist in the game when he dropped this. He was just working hard, building his craft and discovering his sound. And that song was one of the things that built his sound. Wake Up in the Sky, for sure. For Bruno Mars to get on my different-sounding beat was just big. Drive Itself, it was on the Superfly movie soundtrack. Hearing my beats on a movie is big. And then, my last one would be BP / No Judgement with Chris Brown. It shows my other side of my production. I dont just make rap beats. How did you end up with Titanic and Cant Die on Juice Wrlds first posthumous album, Legends Never Die ? I aint never seen nobody like Juice Wrld. That man was the best artist ever in life. The way I started working with him was because he comes from up under our envelope with G Herbo. Juice Wrld was another person who recognized that DY doesnt only have trap beats. DY has a different sound. He recognized that, too. Check out more fromXXLs Spring 2021 issue including
