Hip-Hop Wired: What producers do you look up to?
Ty Dolla $ign: Definitely, I like what [Noah “40” Shebib’s] doing, he’s incredible. I like Boi-1da’s sh-t, the way his drums sound. His mixes are incredible. If we’re gonna talk about some older sh-t, Meshell Ndegeocello, I like how her sh-t sounds, I like Babyface, all of his sh-t. I can go on for days…Dr. Dre of course. Of course, [J]Dilla’s like the best. Timbaland is one of the best of all time because every time he comes out he comes with a new sound and it’s just like ‘wow, fa real?’
Hip-Hop Wired: Interesting that you said Meshell Ndegeocello.
Ty Dolla $ign: Yeah, she’s one of my favorite artists, I play her all the time. I definitely prefer the slow sh-t, I smoke weed all day. [Laughs.]
