I'm no producer but the best advice is to understand that, for example, Premo was working at a time when Hip Hop producers studied alongside other producers in commercial studios and going to those studios didn't come before said producer started from his bedroom and/or friend's house first. More sounds, mixing, melodies, etc. mean nothing if you are looking to polish turds.
If you take a mixing course, beware as it all comes down to being able to only apply what is needed. Every aspect of the industry is powered by those preying on suckers willing to fork over any amount of cash to say they studied with so-and-so.

"I don't like to hear the older artists or the artists of yesterday begrudge what's happening today. I think that that's ass backwards because when we were coming up we didn't want anybody to do that to us." Q-Tip
