Grammy-winning super-producer Dallas Austin is in the trap this week. Dallas laid the foundation for the Atlanta entertainment industry. Music, film and television would not be the same without his contributions. On this “85 South Show” trap episode, he breaks it all down for Karlous Miller and Clayton English. The star also shares his unbelievable experiences with legends such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, James Brown and Prince.

Atlanta has been a very important part of the entertainment industry and hip hop culture for years and Dallas plays a major role in that. Originally from Columbus, Georgia, he talks about his early life and how he got started in the music industry on the show. Dallas even details MJ’s magical ways and Karlous is absolutely blown away.

He also discusses what it was like spending time in Madonna’s haunted castle in Los Angeles, California. The guys are shocked at the story of how Brown motivated his band before a show. Dallas even talks about aliens, the mothership and George Clinton. If you want to know how Puff Daddy found his way in the music industry, Dallas has the story.
