RJD2 Interview: Talks Sampling And Live Instruments

RJD2 is a man beast … too bad his newest album (this interview is a few years old) was terrible … he decided to get his singer/songwriter on. Ugh. I saw him live touring behind it and the songs were just bad.

His first two albums, as well as his work with Blueprint as Soul Position is all QUALITY.
