Jimmy Duval interview on the Producergrind Podcast. We pulled up on Jimmy at his home studio in Bel-Air while were out in LA. Jimmy talked to us about his come up, how he started making beats & more. We spent a lot of time talking about the controversy behind “Look At Me” the hit song he produced for XXXtentacion. Recently Jimmy announced he would be suing the late rapper’s estate for $1 Million in publishing percentages that were given to another party without his consent. A lot of X’s fans have been lashing out at Jimmy on his IG comments but he just wants everyone to know that this is business and has nothing do do with his friendship with X. We also talked about a few other topics including mixing & mastering.
