Off the Record: KY Engineering (Waka Flocka, 2Chainz, Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Drake)
A top-notch engineer is as vital to a hit hip-hop record as the rapper or producer. Responsible for taking a vision of many and crafting it into a singular piece of material is a true art form. There aren’t many engineers out there better than KY. Responsible for a string of hits from the likes of Waka Flocka, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill and Drake, the Lexington native has spent 16 years fine-tuning his craft which has resulted in countless #1 hits. Watch as he breaks down a variety of his techniques – including the “underscrew,” and “stutter” technique – as he walks LRG through it all as part of the ongoing Off the Record series which spotlights some of the finest behind-the-board talents around.
