Don Cannon talks starting out as a DJ, working with Estelle, tax evasion & more [Video]


BBC 1Xtra DJs Ace & Vis recently took a flight over to the other side of the pond to have a sit down with Grammy Award winning producer Don Cannon, in the renowned DTP Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Watch below as the former Aphilliates Music Group in-house producer, who last year signed a production deal with Ludacris‘ Disturbing Tha Peace record label, discusses how he got started in the game as a DJ and a timeline of artists he’s worked with and what separates him from other producers.

He also talks on being snubbed by MTV and his thoughts on artist ranking panels, J.Cole and Tinie Tempah, working with Estelle on her new record which also features Rick Ross [“it’s a different sound for her”] and the recurring issue of celebrities being caught not paying taxes [with recent examples Wesley Snipes and Lil Wayne].
