Mike Dean, the producer and engineer behind landmark projects from Scarface, Kanye, and Travis Scott, got the Nardwuar experience this week. Live from his hybrid studio/tour bus on a Saint Pablo Tour stop in Vancouver, Dean took a trademark trip down memory lane with the host, with a heavy focus on his pioneering early Houston rap days. As usual, Nardwuar supplies some artifacts to ground the conversation, prompting Dean to revisit early work with Scarface, 5th Ward Boyz, and Odd Squad. Watch the full interview above.
