I have highlighted beats and done interviews with some of the biggest producers on the internet in the game, such as mjNichols, godlikepariah, Dansonn, and more. But there’s a certain joy I get when I find a producer that is still early in the game, but I just know is going to be something special. I don’t know if they’ll be the next metro boomin but they are going to contribute something important to the hip hop game in the future. And recently I discovered a producer who I think is going to do just that, and their name is DEADMAN 死人
I first found this producer because I was looking for beats that sampled Clairo and if I am not mistaken, I believe DEADMAN 死人 is actually the first producer to upload a beat that sampled clairo.
The beat I found was this:
After that beat I listened another one that blew me away as well:
(Somehow this producer only has 55 followers on YouTube and has sold one beat so far? Come on!)
So after hearing those two beats, obviously I had to interview whoever this producer was. Below you can check out the interview as well as more beats they have produced.
