Large Professor x The Combat Jack Show Ep. 1
Large Professor stops by The Combat Jack Show to drop some gems on his storied career in the first episode of a three-part interview with Combat Jack and the crew. Just Blaze jumps in after an epic introduction to remind Reggie Ossé that Large Professor is the G.O.A.T. and presents a compelling argument to back his assertion. One of the production innovations he credits to Large Pro is the use of sleigh bells in place of hi-hats. The mere mention of Illmatic then sparks a brief breakdown of Nas‘ classic debut and the beats that defined it, including Large Pro’s track for “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” – a joint Just Blaze cites, along with Main Source‘s “Looking At The Front Door” as the best beats in hip-hop. Extra P caps the discussion by taking them behind the beats as he details his first meetings with Rakim and Big Daddy Kane. Check the footage below. Keep your eyes peeled for the second installment of Large Professor’s visit to The Combat Jack Show.
