Large Professor is one of the greatest producers in all of hip-hop history, and he’s one of my biggest musical influences by far. This mix is my tribute to his catalog, from his debut single to his most recent one, plus original samples and all-Extra P blends (Large Pro verses over different Large Pro-produced tracks). I figure cuts like “Live at the BBQ,” “Looking at the Front Door,” “Fakin’ the Funk,” and the tracks he did for Illmatic are pretty well-covered territory, so I decided I’d shine the spotlight on some of his lesser-known work here. The Professor definitely schools people with his music; this is my take on his curriculum vitae.
UPDATE:I’ve also posted this mix up on Mixcrate, so you can go there to stream it or download it as well. And if you’d like to have it split up into tracks like a CD, drop me a line, and I will send you the MP3s.
I am beyond excited for this. If you know me, you know that Large Professor is pretty much my hero when it comes to hip-hop, so to get the chance to share a billing with him–spinning all 45s, no less–is an incredible honor for me. This is gonna be serious business, y’all. Do NOT miss out!
