Large Professor Tells The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 2: 1996-2012)


A couple weeks ago, I posted Part 1 of my Complex interview feature with Large Professor. Now, here’s Part 2. Intro and link below…

During Nas Week, we gave you Part 1 of our Large Professor Tells All interview, in which he broke down the stories behind his contributions to Illmatic, his early work with Main Source, Rakim, and Kool G Rap, as well as hisMidnight Marauders collaboration with A Tribe Called Quest.

In Part 2, we pick up where we left off with Extra P—in 1996, as he transitioned into his solo career with “The Mad Scientist,” continued his chemistry with Nas on Stillmatic, and produced his first song featuring Wu-Tang Clan MCs. He also talks about the making of three tracks on his new solo album Professor @ Large, which drops on June 26 (you can pre-order here)—including the premiere of two new joints with Busta Rhymes and Fame of M.O.P. Class is in session.

Once again, I’m going to use this as an excuse to post  a classic video from a song that was included in my feature, Lord Finesse’s “Actual Facts” featuring Sadat X, Large Professor, and Grand Puba. This was, and still is, my shit…

Thanks to Extra P and Gustavo for everything! Peace…
