In this full-length interview, Southside reveals that his uncle was the one who got him into music by stealing a laptop computer from an airport that had a digital audio production program called “Fruity Loops” on it. From there he talks about being motivated to make it as a music producer so that his dad would come around more. The Clayton county native then talks about working with Waka Flocka at the tender age of 17, before making music for live acts such as Gucci Mane, Future, Young Thug, the Ferrari Boyz, and Marshmello later on in his career. As the conversation moves along, Southside shares the story about how he met Metro when he was just a 14-year-old kid who looked up to him and how they’ve grown into really good friends over the years. He also referred to Metro as the best producer in the world right now. As the conversation comes to an end, he shares his thoughts on the recent mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and the RICO conspiracy charges against the members of YSL.
