Red Bull Academy sat down with producer Mannie Fresh for a two-hour lecture. The Louisiana native discussed several topics including growing up in the musically inclined culture of New Orleans and what it means to be a producer today.
In the interview, Mannie Fresh explained the first time he was introduced to the music that would change his life—hip-hop:
“Kind of like my real introduction to music was when ‘Planet Rock’ came out and my dad had the song and we was just sitting around and he played. I remember this like it was yesterday, I said, ‘Oh shit’…I was like, ‘This is hip-hop right here.’”
