The Grammy-nominated, musician-extraordinaire and the highly sought after Terrace Martin stopped through the Power 106 studios to chop it up with his close friends the L.A. Leakers Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk. Speaking on his current album ‘Drones,’ Martin details why he wanted to tap back into his L.A. roots and dropped several gems on the art of his creativity and the legends and hip-hop icons who have come to influence his sound.
Martin has lent his production genius to all four of Kendrick Lamar’s studio albums, has developed a close relationship with Snoop Dogg, and so their appearances on his latest ‘Drones’ album is a no-brainer. With the album’s title track as the featured single, which also includes appliances from Ty Dolla Sign and James Fauntleroy, Terrace tells the Leakers that his new project is in response to his need to have his music played on the radio, as his career has taken a more jazz approach.
During his LIFTOFF appearance, Martin speaks on coming up in Los Angeles and how Snoop Dogg has come to be one of his greatest influences. While the hip-hop Mount Rushmore continues to be a topic of discussion, without any hesitation, Terrace says that Snoop fills all the spots on his West Coast Rushmore list. Martin goes on to share his thoughts about artists he’s currently tapped in with like Smino and IDK, and he also shares his advice to younger artists, and much more.
