Illmind Discusses Beat Tapes, G-Unit, Dilla’s Influence

April 6, 2009

Emilio Sparks interviews producer Illmind as he discusses the origin of his name, current projects, working with Sha Money XL & G-Unit, and his music production teaching and academic advising work for Harlem Children’s Zone.  Obviously these aren’t the normal activities for producers… then again, Illmind isn’t your ordinary producer.

He also talks about being discovered by Sha Money XL and D Prosper through a beat tape, the influence of J Dilla on his early work, and current production trends.

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome website!
