Rob Swift Talks Large Professor, Akinyele, Respect

July 28, 2010

If you’re a DJ, you should watch this… period. Raven interviews DJ Rob Swift to discuss the importance highlighting DJ’s, paying respect to those who came before, and the rare privilege of watching Extra P do his thing.

I learned how to make a beat. I learned how to make a song by sitting in the studio and watching him, Large Professor, put together Akinyele’s album. So, when I see Paul, again, it’s that nostalgic feeling that I get, I’m reminded of where I came from.

If you haven’t already, go back and listen to Akinyele’s Vagina Diner. Large Professor’s reworking of Don Covay was nothing less than dusty fingered mastery.

I could never decide who was better… Rob Swift or Roc Raida. Those two were my favorites in the X crew.
