As part of CTRL NY‘s The Recipe, Elite sat down for a two-part interview. In part one, the Dreamville producer delves into the past and speaks on his early days producing for Ruff Ryders, learning about sample clearances when The Temptations came calling after he sampled them for Drag-On’s “Fireman,” missing out on linking with Timbal, working on J. Cole’s Born Sinner and more.
