Deflowered is a MERRY JANE original series about the intimate and personal “first time” moments of artists, musicians and influencers across cannabis culture. 

We kick off this year’s inaugural Deflowered with acclaimed sound engineer Derek “MixedByAli” Ali. Ali honed his craft for several years as Dr. Dre’s protege. Since then, he has recorded and mixed albums for some of hip-hop’s biggest acts, including Kendrick Lamar’s new album To Pimp A Butterfly. In this episode, Ali talks about his first time in the studio with Dr. Dre, and what it felt like to get graded by the legendary artist. He also talks classic stoner flicks, his munchies of choice, and his go-to album to listen to while smoking out. 

Ring in the new year with Deflowered and watch the full episode above. To see who else we’ve featured, subscribe to our YouTube
