"The most significant change that has happened to the hip-hop industry is money . . . "
-- DJ Clark Kent
Check out this informative video interview with the legendary hip-hopper DJ Clark Kent as talks about discovering Jay-Z, producing "Brooklyn's Finest" (with Biggie and Jigga), the rap industry and his indispensable "kicks"-and-history collection (he is a major sneaker fiend). This is a great interview. Props to director Kellen Dengler and the guys over at NHTVSN.
Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds recently chopped it up with -- in my humble opinion -- the first super rapper-producer, legendary studio wizard and rhyme-spitter Large Professor (aka Large Pro). Large Pro goes back in time for this interview -- the history behind Main Source, how he hooked up with Nas and reveals that he produced (but was never credited) Eric B. & Rakim's album, Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em. Classic radio shit.
And finally . . .
Oct. 30 will mark the 6-year anniversary of the untimely death of the late Run-DMC DJ, Jam Master Jay. The DJ was shot and killed in a recording studio in Queens, N.Y., in 2002. His death still remains unsolved.
