Waajeed of Platinum Pied Pipers explains how the new generation of Detroit kicked off, from crosstown rivalries between Dwele and Slum Village to borrowing Dilla’s busted MPC and making his first beats. He remembers his parents listening to Model 500 and Kraftwerk, explains how being a DJ saved him from getting robbed, and describes the Midwestern work ethic that won’t let him drink water or pee until he finishes three beats.
