Tales From D&D Studios Part 2: Dexter Thibou Talks KRS-One

We all have our assumptions about the artists we love. To be honest, most of the time those "assumptions" get squashed flat when we finally get a chance to come face to face and meet, greet or in this case work with/for them..."Never meet your heroes"; that's what they say.

Here, in part 2 of's "Tales From D&D Studios" series, former D&D intern (and now renowned studio recording engineer) Dexter Thibou reminisces on his time in the legendary studio space running errands for Hip-Hop's teacher of all teachers, KRS-One and the legend's surprising generosity.
