On the Antwuan Dixon podcast I mentioned that I was interested in interviewing Hurt, who you probably already subconsciously know courtesy of his “HURT WHAT IT DO!” producer tag. Hurt saw that interview and got in touch and soon after we met up for this interesting conversation in which we talked about how he got into producing, all of the superstars (Future, Chief Keef, Fredo Santana!) he’s worked with and he even told us about the time that Arnold Schwarzenegger knocked on his front door. Enjoy and look for another episode of No Jumper dropping Thursday!
