Marley Marl Talks The Juice Crew, "The Bridge Is Over" & More On The Combat Jack Show
Marley Marl pays a visit to The Combat Jack Show to discuss a number of topics with the crew, including The Juice Crew, life in QB, “The Bridge Is Over” and more. He explains the beef between Mr. Magic and some hungry MC’s from The Bronx, which inadvertently lead to the formal rise of BDP. He also breaks down how he introduced looping and drum sampling to the rap game. Those points alone compel Combat Jack to split the genre into the pre-Marley and after-Marley eras (PM and AM), just to illustrate how significant his contributions have been to the lives of all of the artists and producers that have come after him. He also dropped a great note about Marley Marl alongside the discussion:
We mention others as being on GOAT super producer status, but I’m not hearing Marley Marl’s name. Which is criminal. Listen to how Marley literally changed the game and pushed the art form. Hear him talk about the discoveries of Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap. Learn about how he inadvertently produced his own dis track “The Bridge Is Over”, what happened to the Juice Crew, and more. After this episode, you’re guaranteed to acknowledge his place amongst the greatest whoever did it. Kings really do come from Queens.
