Terrace Martin talks Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick, previews new song w/ Wiz + more

| Exclusive in-depth interview with Terrace Martin, Devi Dev and Badd Lucc. In part 2 Terrace talks about working with Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar before their major buzz and what he sees as keys to their success. Terrace who has songs in the vaults with numerous artists plays us a song where he sampled Jodeci, which Wiz jumped on. Terrace explains that Wiz was at his house when they made the song and that he prefers to work with artists on a personal level and be involved from songs conception to the mastering and that he doesn’t send artists beats over email. At the end of the interview Terrace cautions artists to stay humble because one is always a student of Music and never a master. On Wiz and Kendrick “I’m proud of ’em man. They didn’t do it the shortcut way,” Martin explained when asked about Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, and other successful artists he’s worked with. “They came about at a time where people was there to believe you had to have a huge cosign to be successful in this business. And Wiz Khalifa did it without [that]. He did it ground roots. Wiz Khalifa did it like a blues band. A blues band records a demo and goes on the road and sells demos at every spot in a little van with a trailer. He did it like that. The same thing with Kendrick. Kendrick was flying. And Kendrick got his buzz by just being good. It’s no secret to it. You’re dope you’ll fly. If you work hard you’ll fly. And he’s flying right now. Them two cats is flying right now
