Since moving from Columbia, South Carolina, to Atlanta, Georgia in2014, artist and producer better known as Pi’erre Bourne has completedwhat seems like a lifetime’s music industry experience. He’s finished anengineering program, created “portable studios” to record artists forsome extra cash, interned at Hustle Gang, engineered for Epic Records,quit engineering for Epic Records, become the go-to producer for risingAtlanta rap talent Young Nudy (who happens to be 21 Savage’s cousin),and, most notably, served as the secret sauce to Playboi Carti's selftitleddebut mixtape, producing six of the tape’s 15 tracks, including themonumental hide-it-in-my-sock anthem “Magnolia.” And somehow, inbetweenall of this and more, he’s recorded and released his own soloprojects: three tapes in his The Life Of Pi’erre series on which hedemonstrates his melodic deftness, lacing sung bars in and out of hisown space-y and sparse, neon-chord blotted production that makes youfeel like you’re speeding down the Milky Way.
