NBA: Former Player Larry Sanders Talks About Producing ‘Don’t Run On PARTYNEXTDOOR’s New Album ‘P3’

After signing a four-year, $44 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, things started to go down rather than up for Larry Sanders.  He dealt with injuries, and suspensions for his marijuana use.  Then in February of last year, he walked away from the game completely, leaving $27 million on the table.  While many thought it was an insane choice to make, Sanders was at peace with his decision.  He had been dealing with anxiety and depression, and wanted to pursue other things in life besides basketball.  Music was one of those things, and now something big has come out of his other passion.  Sanders was credited for his production work on “Don’t Run,” one of the best songs from PARTYNEXTDOOR’s latest album, P3.  The song also features production from Sevn Thomas, who was behind Rihanna’s hit song “Work.”
