Interview: Terrace Martin Hijacks Mr. Wavvy

Terrace Martin is a multi-talented Jazz musician best known for his production on songs for West Coast Hip-Hop favorites such as YG, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and perhaps most notably, Kendrick Lamar. Since as early as 2010, Martin has been an integral member of Lamar’s creative team, particularly with the 5-time Grammy Award-winning album, To Pimp A Butterfly, for which he produced six tracks.
