We kicked off our A3C Pro Audio interview videos with Cardo by covering the story behind his huge song with Jeezy and Jay Z, "Seen It All." But now let's work backwards and get to Cardo's earlier days.  

This time around, he tells the story of how Wiz Khalifa really gave him his first big break way back in '09, picking up the beats that would become "In the Cut" and "Proceed" after a hotel room meeting for which, according to Cardo, he had bubble guts. Plus, how his "Mezmorized" beat on Kush & OJ lead to him getting fired from his day job and diving full time into producing and why Mac Miller is underrated.
