Large Professor On Nas, NY Hip-Hop, Sampling

June 5, 2009

Large Professor Part 1 of 2 on The Round Table&logo=” allowfullscreen=”true” allowscriptaccess=”always” bgcolor=”FFFFFF” src=””>

You can’t help but like Large Professor’s attitude… always comes across as humble and focused primarily on the music.  Here Large Pro talks about initially getting involved in hip-hop, organizing Main Source, Paul C, and the challenges of being a sample based producer.  He also talks about the early days of Nas, allegiance to NY hip-hop, and his top favorite personal productions.

Part 2 after the break!

I think he’s the best producer on the Mic.
I think on the mic he’s better than Pete Rock.

im going to have to disagree with you buddy….Kanye is def best producer on the mic…until i get on atleast lol…but for now Ye definitely.. Q-tip is a close second.

DOOM is def best producer on the mic!

I dig what this Rock Me TV is trying to do and the interviews but the interviewers are so uninteresting and IMO take away from the interviews themselves. If you want a dope in depth interview with Extra P search the Juan Epstein episode he did with Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg. I mean no disrespect to their movement though this and the D Dot interview was nice.

in terms of the best producer on the mic i’d have to ask why you would mention q-tip and not j dilla?!?!

a oftenly overlooked producer/m.c. and my 2nd place: Black Milk (also from motown)

Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after
checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking
and checking back frequently!
