[53:19] Where to listen to Austin’s work Notable Quotes I was able to write a bunch of verses that the actual songs didn’t even make it on the album. But it was just a great feeling for me to get me in that writing mood. For my whole career up until now, I have been a YouTube-type beat-fiend! The beats that you don’t find on YouTube are the beats that I’m trying to get on. When I’m finding a beat on YouTube, it’s a very tricky game. There’s a mix between you wanting a super flamey beat but you want one that doesn’t have too many views. 9 times out of 10 when I listen to a song, I’m going to hear some type of auto-tuned type. If you love making music, people will love hearing it. In the nowadays world of music, if you want to be an artist, you really need to have multiple hats.
