HHNM: You’re also credited on Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III and Tha Carter IV. How was the experience of working with Wayne?
Andrew Dawson: Oh yeah, those are big albums. Actually, on Tha Carter IV, my involvement was a lil bit less because I only did some sample replaying. But Tha Carter III, I mixed the entire album and the experience was great. That was a huge album. It did a million in the first week and it was very rare at that time for an album to do so. Tha Carter IV did close to million too. It’s fun working with him. Hopefully, I will be a part of Tha Carter V too (laughs).
HHNM: Okay. Have you heard Tha Carter IV?
Andrew Dawson: Oh yeah.
HHNM: What are your thoughts on that album which is commercially very successful but panned by most critics.
Andrew Dawson: know there are a lot of songs that are spartan, production wise. I mean, if I had to pick between III and IV, I would probably pick III. But I think there are a lot of good songs on Tha Carter IV and I don’t understand why people would dislike it. I actually kinda dig that record.
