King Boom: Outkast - I Say Outkast Because They Were Without A Doubt "Outkast" Had A Totally Different Sound From Most Cats Coming Out Of The South. I Got All They Albums. Even Albums From Some Of The Other Cats From Dungeon Family. Dungeon Fam Just Went Hard! & I Still Keep Up With Big Boi. 3stacks Kinda Making Me Mad With This Pop Shit Tho. They Influence Me A lot Because I'm From Arkansas, So I'm Kinda In The Same Boat. Not Too Many Folks Here Doing This Kinda Of Production.
Madlib - Why? Because He is Muthafucking Madlib. Haha! But Really Dudes Work Ethic Is Crazy. And He's My Favorite Musician Period.
Life - People, Places, & Things Man. Im Very Observant. & Things That I See & Experience Drive Me. I Could See A Bad Car Wreck & Feel Bad For Those Folks All Day.
